SAN DIEGO, Oct. 12, 2001 -- The American Reporter was recognized for journalistic excellence by the San Diego Press Club on Thursday evening.
In the Online category, AR Correspondent (and American Reporter Music Review editor) Jim Trageser took a third place in the Open Print category for his commentary, "Media's bruised egos behind campaign finance'reform'," published Nov. 18, 2000, in the American Reporter.
AR also took third place in the Online Writing, Features category, for Trageser's May 27, 2000, review of Buddy Blue's latest CD, "Pretend It's Okay."
It was the second time this year Trageser has been honored forhis writing. He was a second place winner in two categories at the Los Angeles Press Club's Deadline Awards dinner headlined by Dan Rather earlierthis year.
"We are immensely proud of Jim," said American Reporter Editor-in-Chief Joe Shea. "His work has graced our pages for years with an artist's touch and a fine ear for music. Because of him, some of the best music criticism and political commentary in America appears regularly in AR's pages."
