DNAinfo.com wins six New York Press Club Awards

Rather than breaking news, our first-rate editorial team at DNAinfo.com made news this week, notching six wins at this year’s New York Press Club Awards – more than any other news outlet, except for the Associated Press, which also won in six categories. Among the work honored was DNAinfo.com’s innovative Crime & Safety Report, the groundbreaking reporting on the NYPD ticket-fixing scandal by our veteran investigative journalist Murray Weiss, Amy Zimmer’s continuing coverage of mismanagement at the National Arts Club, and our team reporting on Hurricane Irene. Given that the Press Club Awards drew entries from 58 news organizations, including some of the nation’s biggest and most established media brands, DNAinfo.com’s big win is a great accomplishment. I couldn’t be prouder of the team.
