Hall receives SABEW President’s Award
Kevin G. Hall, chief economics correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers, was recognized by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers with one of the highest honors, the President’s Award.
Hall received the honor during the SABEW fall conference held at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in Midtown Manhattan.
Hall, a former SABEW board member and past president, is being honored for his service to the Society of American Business Editors & Writers and his commitment to raising the standards of business journalism.
“Kevin has been a tireless, hands-on advocate for SABEW for years, as a board member, president, conference planner, fundraiser, mentor and strategic thinker,” said SABEW President Cory Schouten. “SABEW events wouldn’t be the same without Kevin’s smart insights, positive attitude, signature bow ties, and knack for finding great live music in every city we visit. There’s no one at SABEW more deserving of this award.”
Kevin shared the 2016 Gold Barlett & Steele Award as part of the Panama Papers team, and is a 2010 Pulitzer finalist and Loeb Award winner for reporting on Wall Street and the financial crisis.
From 1999 to 2005 Hall was Knight Ridder’s Brazil-based South America bureau chief, and won the Sigma Delta Chi for Best Foreign Correspondence in 2004. Hall was the 2013-14 president of SABEW and co-coordinates its annual Goldschmidt data-immersion fellowship.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by an organization that so strongly supports both professional development and fraternity in business reporting,” said Hall.
