Emmott, Ingrassia to receive business journalism awards
Bill Emmott, the former editor in chief of The Economist, and Larry Ingrassia, the business editor of the New York Times, were named to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Lawrence Minard Editor Award, respectively.
The awards are given annually as part of the Loeb Awards.
Emmott retired in 2006 after 13 years in the position. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an individual whose career exemplifies the consistent and superior insight and professional skills necessary to further the understanding of business, financial and economic issues.
Ingrassia’s award, named in memory of Laury Minard, honors excellence in business, financial and economic journalism editing and recognizes an editor whose work does not receive a byline or whose face does not appear on the air for the work covered. Minard was the founding editor of Forbes Global magazine and a former final judge for the Loeb Awards.
Emmott and Ingrassia will receive their career achievement awards at the 2009 Loeb Awards dinner on Monday, June 29, in New York City. Winners of the 12 competition categories will also be announced from among the following finalists, which were selected from 392 entries.
