The Morning Report
San Diego news and info
you need to take on the day.
Congratulations to my colleague, Will Carless, who won a best-in-show award last night from the San Diego Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Carless took home the award for his coverage of life in a Carmel Valley migrant camp. Carless also won the organization’s diversity award and feature-writing award for the same series. And he scored a first-place investigative reporting award for his series on Mission Valley’s development.
It was a good night for Will.
In all, voiceofsandiego.org took home 27 awards from the organization, sweeping the competition’s investigative and political reporting categories for the region’s daily newspapers.
Scott Lewis won first-place awards for his SLOP blog and for his column writing. Andrew Donohue swept the online breaking news category for coverage of the city’s Kroll report and SEC settlement. He won a first-place award for non-deadline coverage of a shooting at the U.S.-Mexico border.
I won a first-place award in multicultural coverage for a story about a languishing cleanup of a toxic lead smelter in Tijuana.
