NY Times’ Carter wins Nash Award
New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet and business editor Ellen Pollock sent out the following announcement on Monday:
We are pleased to announce that Adrienne Carter is this year’s recipient of the Nathaniel Nash Award for excellence in business and economics journalism.
Adrienne joined The New York Times in 2010. She has been deputy Business editor since 2017, and was the Business department’s international editor for three years prior to that.
This award honors our colleague Nathaniel Nash, a business reporter who died in a plane crash while on assignment in Croatia in 1996. Traditionally, it has been given to a Times reporter “who excels in business or economic news, nationally or abroad, just as Nathaniel did.”
Adrienne is the first editor to receive the Nathaniel Nash Award. Her devotion to the paper’s business coverage, as well as her love of international economic stories, makes her an ideal candidate for this honor. Like Nathaniel, Adrienne is known among her colleagues for being supportive of their hard work. And no editor gets as excited as Adrienne when a reporter lands a challenging story that will open up new worlds to the paper’s readers.
This year Adrienne has worked closely with the reporters pursuing the causes of the crashes of the Boeing 737 Max flights in Ethiopia and Indonesia. She helped shepherd China Rules, a multipart, interactive project published last year about China’s evolution as an economic and political power. The year before, she put together a special print section and digital package of stories looking back at the 10 years since the start of the financial crisis. All demonstrated her deep knowledge of business and economics and her special gift for crafting compelling coverage for New York Times readers.
Adrienne is the 21st winner of the Nathaniel Nash Award. Past honorees include Andrew Kramer, Hiroko Tabuchi, Nelson Schwartz, Liz Alderman, Mark Landler and Keith Bradsher.
Adrienne will receive her award at a luncheon this month, where we will be joined by Nathaniel’s widow, Elizabeth, and their children. As is the tradition, Adrienne will be presented with an inscribed copy of Meyer Berger’s “Story of The New York Times, 1851-1951,” and a cash prize of $3,000.
Please join us in congratulating Adrienne.
