WAMC/Northeast Public Radio is pleased to announce that it is a finalist in the 2015 Mirror Awards. The Mirror Awards are the most important awards for recognizing excellence in media industry reporting. Established by the Syracuse University Newhouse School in 2006, the awards honor the reporters, editors and teams of writers who hold a mirror to their own industry for the public's benefit.
WAMC is a finalist in the category Best Single Story - Radio, Television, Cable or Online Broadcast Media for the story "Local Media Question Pittsfield's Press Protocol" by Jim Levulis, a Syracuse graduate.
“We are flattered to be considered for this award,” says WAMC’s President and CEO Alan Chartock. “This proves once again that when people invest in the station good things happen. Congratulations to our Jim Levulis.”
The finalists are chosen from a pool of more than 300 entries by a group of journalists and journalism educators. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on June 11, in New York City.
