LA Business Journal garners top award
For the second consecutive year, the Los Angeles Business Journal has won the top award for overall excellence among weekly business newspapers from the Alliance of Area Business Publications.
Editor Charles Crumpley writes, “The Business Journal won the honor, called the gold award, in the Best Newspaper contest, at an awards banquet June 26 in Indianapolis. The Business Journal won five other awards from the AABP, which is the professional association for weekly and monthly business publications.
“The Business Journal also won six awards and two honorable mentions at the Los Angeles Press Club’s annual awards banquet June 27, as the year’s journalism contest season winds down.
“‘Someone once told me that awards don’t matter – unless you win them. Well, I’m here to tell you they matter,’ said Publisher Matt Toledo. ‘I couldn’t be more proud of the dedication and leadership provided by Charles Crumpley, my editor. Each week he starts with a fresh canvas and pulls together a great issue by inspiring and challenging our reporters and editors to produce the best work they are capable of. I am so pleased that the judges recognize the quality they deliver each week.'”
