Joplin Globe editor honored

In Association News On

Carol Stark, editor of The Joplin Globe, has been named Editor of the Year by the Local Media Association, taking first place in its daily newspaper competition category.

 

Judging was done by Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in Evanston, Ill. Judges described The Globe’s coverage of the May 22 tornado as "phenomenal."

 

"Working under the most trying of conditions — one of the dead was a Globe staffer; half the staff’s homes were destroyed or severely damaged — Carol Stark and her newsroom produced important stories, comprehensive coverage that reported, explained, empathized," the judges said. "It’s hard to conceive of a newspaper of any size serving its community better in such a tragic situation."

 

Stark will receive the award at the Local Media Association’s annual conference in Atlanta in September. The association formerly was known as the Suburban Newspapers of America. Click here to edit!
