PBN honored for stories on Hispanics, election

Posted 2/18/08

BOSTON – Providence Business News recently received two awards from the New England Press Association for its 2006 election coverage and a series on Hispanic businesses in southern New England.

The paper was awarded second place in the categories “Local Election Coverage” and “Business / Economic Reporting” for weekly newspapers.

The association described PBN’s election coverage as “solid, varied and well-conceived coverage for the business community, engagingly written.”

The series on Hispanic businesses, written by then-PBN staff writer Natalie Myers, was noted for its “enlightening view of the immigrants who are changing our nation, using a business training class as the starting point.” The association noted that Myers’ work went beyond writing about the R.I. Small Business Development Center’s Primer Paso training classes, portraying “each participant in the class as a flesh-and-blood entrepreneur, describing their strategies and experiences.” •
