Bloomberg wins National Headliner Awards business news category
Bloomberg News won first place in the print business news category of the National Headliner Awards, given annually by the Press Club of Atlantic City.
The Miami Herald placed second in the category, while the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel was third.
Bloomberg won for “Lehman’s Lessons,” written by Mark Pittman, Bob Ivry, Christine Harper and Alison Fitzgerald. Here is one of the stories in the series.
The Herald was recognized for its coverage of the Allen Stanford scandal. The reporters were Michael Sallah, Rob Barry and Lucy Komisar.
The Journal-Sentinel’s John Schmid and Ben Poston were recognized for “Patents Pending,” which documented how dysfunction at the U.S. Patent Office kneecaps the innovation and entrepreneurialism that it’s meant to protect and promote.
In the broadcast business news category, CNN won first and second, while NBC Nightly News placed third.
CNN’s winning entries were “The Border” and “How the Wheels Came Off: The Rise and Fall of the American Auto Industry.” NBC’s entry was an explanation of the AIG bailout.
