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.
