It was the ninth time in the last 12 years that PBN has been recognized for editorial general excellence in the annual better newspaper competition. PBN was also awarded two first-place awards, two second-place awards and two third-place awards in six separate writing categories.
The Providence Journal was the only other local publication to earn “Newspaper of the Year” honors at the fall conference. The Journal received the recognition in two categories, one for daily and the other for Sunday newspapers with circulation of more than 25,000.
