My work on the aftermath of the anti-narcotic bill (see the immediately previous post) has been chosen as one of the top three examples of investigative reporting done at newspapers of our size in Ohio.
Three investigative reporting finalists were chosen in each of the five circulation-size categories. That’s among more than 3,000 entries.
The AP Society of Ohio issues the awards, chosen by judges based outside the state. I’m told judges are editors from some of the nation’s best newspapers in each circulation-size category.
The Springfield News-Sun falls in the category for 13,000-24,999 average daily circulation.
