TWI’s Mary Kane Takes Multiple SPJ Awards for Foreclosure Crisis Reporting « The Washington Independent
Anybody who’d been following the ace reporting of TWI’s Mary Kane on the foreclosure crisis knows she’s one of the best in the business. Still, it’s nice for her to receive some official recognition of that fact.
At the Society of Professional Journalists DC Pro Chapter’s Dateline Awards Dinner on Tuesday, Mary — who was up against some of the best reporters in Washington — took first place in the “Best Feature in a Daily Newspaper” category for a heart-wrenching story she wrote about one Northern Virginia immigrant’s eviction during the holiday season. Mary also took second place in the “Best Business Reporting in a Daily Newspaper” category for a two-part series on foreclosures in Prince George’s County, Md.
TWI is very fortunate to have a reporter of Mary’s caliber digging up the real-life stories of the people at the center of the housing crisis. Congratulations, Mary. You deserve it!
