The nominations for the Canadian Association of Journalist's awards came out today and I was honoured with a nomination!
The Star also was nominated in two other reporting categories, David Bruser, in the “open newspaper” category for his series “War at Home.” Also nominated Sports reporters Robert Cribb and Lois Kalchman in the “computer-assisted reporting” category for their multi-part series “Minor Hockey, Major Problems."
