NABJ awards for business reporting
The National Association of Black Journalists gave out two awards in the business news category on Saturday in its annual Salute to Excellence awards competition. The winners were:
Newspaper – Business: Bob Norman, New Times Broward-Palm Beach, â€œMinority Report.â€?
Norman’s 2004 piece is about how a hospital district commissioner in South Florida uses his minority status for financial gain. It can be read here.
Newspaper – Business: Ron Nixon, Terry Collins, and Dee DePass, Star Tribune, â€œBorrowing Trouble.â€?
You can read all three parts of the Borrowing Trouble series here. It’s quite good and focuses on how many low-income consumers are stuck with high-interest loans.
