Boeing coverage wins national award March 7, 2010Posted by amyrolph in Journalism, Stories, The Herald.
When the Boeing 787 took to the sky in December, I was standing in the rain sending tweets with frozen fingers and typing updates via BlackBerry. Several reporters and photographers from the Herald chronicled the much-anticipated first flight of the airplane — we did it because it’s our job, and we enjoy doing that job whether recognized or not.
Still, it’s always nice to get a little pat on the back.
The Herald’s first-flight coverage was recognized last week with a national award for breaking-news coverage from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. It’s an honor to have our hard work recognized, especially the heavy-lifting of aerospace reporter Michelle Dunlop.
