Information corporations from across Atlantic Canada have been regarded for their work in radio, print and television on Thursday evening, but a neighborhood newspaper covering the southwest coastline of Newfoundland was a huge winner.
Wreckhouse Push, an impartial newspaper based mostly in Port aux Basques, secured Gold awards at the Atlantic Journalism Awards in Halifax, winning in the types of breaking information, photojournalism portrait/attribute and ideal community newspaper news story.
Just about every award was tied to the paper’s protection of article-tropical storm Fiona, which ravaged the southwest coastline in September.
Editor in Main Rene Roy and his tiny staff pumped out various stories documenting the damage and tales of the storm, together with shots and online video that were seen all around the planet.
“It was so intense that I did not really believe about the excellent. I just desired to get information and facts out. So the simple fact that we managed to get both, it truly is nice to know,” Roy explained to CBC Radio Friday.
