The Spokesman-Review was honored Thursday for the quality of its business section by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.
Sixteen newspapers of 65 that submitted entries were recognized. The Spokesman-Review was one of five judged best among those in the category with circulation between 100,000 and 225,000.
The others were the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press, Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch, Providence (R.I.) Journal Bulletin, and the Contra Costa (Calif.) Times.
“To be judged among the best business sections in the country underscores again The Spokesman-Review’s progress toward becoming the best newspaper of its size in the country,” said Chris Peck, managing editor. “I think this award reflects the hard work our business staff has put in to keep a general newspaper audience informed about a very important part of community life.”
