The Reno Dispatch Wins Nine Awards at Press Club's 2015 Excellence in Journalism Awards

San Diego is home to some of the finest journalists in the nation. We were honored to be in their company Tuesday night, and proud to have won 11 awards -- the most of any journalist -- at the San Diego Press Club's 42nd Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards. 

The Reno Dispatch, the national news blog you're currently reading, earned nine awards, including First Place recognition for our 2014 election coverage (Young Americans Didn't Vote, Latino Americans Didn't Vote, And You’re Calling This A Mandate?), our health and medicine writing (How Cancer Made Me A Better Writer), and our profile writing (EXCLUSIVE: Renee Richards Talks About Life, Tennis and Bruce Jenner).

I was also pleased to win two awards for my investigative reporting for One was for a three-part series in which I took an in-depth look at whether President Obama has achieved his goals for helping America’s veterans. The other was for piece I wrote on how the Department of Veterans Affairs has evidently turned its back on military reserves exposed to Agent Orange.

In 2013, The Reno Dispatch won five Press Club awards, and in 2014 we won two. That makes a total of 16 journalism awards in the three years we've been up and running. Thanks very much to everyone for reading and supporting our national news blog. I'm not much of a techie, but I'm old that The Reno Dispatch has had more than 700,000 visits in just the last year and 1/2. As long as you keep visiting, and reading, we will keep writing.

  4. It has been found that in the practical field and calling so many individuals who were not in any case able to understand the themes and did not gain decent evaluations but rather since they don't progress toward becoming bibliophiles i.e. they don't take after the books just however their own particular instinctual information along with learning gained from books they have a tendency to be more to explore
