Trio of B.C. reporters up for CAJ award; job openings

April 26, 2012 Comments off

Items of note, including three jobs not posted on Gaulin:

—————–

Kamloops This Week reporter Tim Petruk, Vancouver Courier reporter Cheryl Rossi, and XTra! correspondent David P. Ball have all been named finalists in the Canadian Association of Journalists awards for community journalism. A pair of reporters in Ontario are also up for the award. Tim is nominated for his 28 Seconds series about the police shooting of a Kamloops man. Cheryl is up her her profile of an outdoor non-profit that works with high school students facing problems in class. And David was nominated for his article on the uneasy relationship between the police and the gay community.

The awards will be handed out at a gala April 28 in Toronto.

Also, the Courier‘s Barry Link, along with Nanaimo Daily News editor Cale Cowan, each won Jack Webster Foundation fellowships to attend a week-long seminar at the Poynter Institute.

———

Speaking of Cale, he wrote a sweet little vignette about why the job of a newspaper reporter isn’t the fifth-worst job on the face of the planet.

Newspapering has meant that the past 23 years have been filled with days that are never the same; interesting people coming in and out of my life; the chance to travel; to live in four different provinces; and to write for a living.

Who gets to do that?

If you were one of the few reporters to come across the survey, read and scoff about it here. (Our profession’s poor rating has more to do with job prospects than the actual job.)

————–

Staying in Nanaimo for a second, here’s a News Bulletin story on Merv Unger, who won the Eric Dunning Integrity Award at the Ma Murray Awards. Merv was the News Bulletin‘s first editor and also served as a city councillor.

“I’ve seen changes from very strict rules in journalism where news reporting and commentary were separated stringently. If you were a reporter, you had no opinion,” he said. “That has evolved all the way to today where I think one of the biggest dangers is advocacy journalism, where people take on causes and do not present an unbiased picture.”

————–

The Vanderhoof Omineca Express is looking for a new editor. Former editor Hannah Wright, who did a fantastic job on the Cody Alan Legebokoff case, returned to the UK over the winter due to visa issues. She hopes to return, according to a January Twitter post.

—————

The Oceanside Star is looking for a reporter. Two-person newsroom. Small town (Parksville). Pretty nice location.

—————-

And this is a pretty premiere gig, as far as mid-sized community papers go: the many-award-winning Whistler Question needs a new editor. Pretty decent gig. Also, this is a pretty spectacular headline: Nipples aren’t for chewing.

—————–

Kristian Rasmussen is the Columbia Valley Pioneer’s newest reporter. Read his introductory column here. P.S. What’s the consensus on the website’s background, particularly behind the text?

——————

Finally, the 2012 Canadian Community Newspaper Awards will be announced today at a gala in T.O. Winners will be posted online afterwards. See the full list of finalists here. And if anyone is in Toronto and can send me anything of note, please do so by emailing bclocalreporter@gmail.com.

Thanks.

——————

Finally, stay tuned for a major-ish announcement about this blog. Post should be up around 11 a.m.

A week late — shut up! — here are your individual and special category 2012 Ma Murray Award winners (Newspaper excellence award winners were posted earlier. Pay attention). If your name is (BCYCNA general manager) George Affleck, STOP! I know you read this blog George. When you get around to publishing the names of the award winners next year, please, please, please do not post them as a PDF. Don’t to it! No! Bad general manager! That is all.

Gulf Islands Driftwood editor Gail Sjuberg Tebows for Thompson

April 16, 2012 3 comments

Before Saturday’s Ma Murraw Awards I put out a challenge to the night’s award-winners: the first get down like overrated NFL quarterback Tim Tebow on stage or thank Baby Jesus ala imaginary NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby would win a Hunter S. Thompson book.

But according to our not-particularly-reliable-nor-sober Special Correspondent, after more than two dozen speeches (most lasting no more than 10 seconds) and a few not-so-subtle reminders by hosts Jill Krop and Dan Quinn, it was an editor who didn’t even win an award who finally got religion (and the book).

Gulf Islands Driftwood photographer John Cameron wasn’t at the River Rock theatre to accept his sports photo award but his editor, Gail Sjuberg, was.

After a nice speech, Gail (or someone who our correspondent believed to be Gail; she later confirmed it was her) performed what might be best described as a half-Tebow. Our judge reports with sorrow that her knee didn’t quite touch the ground. But he said she deserves the book anyway.

That said, our correspondent has little reason to be throwing stones: not only was he too drunk to even confirm that it was Gail on stage, but I also suspect that alcohol may be to blame for his report that there was an above-average number of identical twins at the after party.

I’ll have more on the comedy, awards and speeches later this week. And Gail will be getting her book sometime soon-ish.

Tebow for (Hunter S.) Thompson: Book up for grabs in first B.C. Reporter Reporter contest

April 13, 2012 3 comments

The BCYCNA Ma Murray Awards are Saturday and blah, blah, blah.  You know what’s happening. So let’s spice things up.

Aside from some suspect categories—holiday edition, anyone?—The BCYCNA does the Ma Murrays up right. It’s always a fun evening, the trophies are beautiful, and the winners get the chance to make speeches. It’s like a real awards show, in other words.

But, maybe because print journalists are terrified of microphones, the speeches can get a tad predictable. This year, hopefully, things will be different because of …. drumroll please………. The First Annual Ma Murray Prize Giveaway!

How it works

The prize: a slightly used version of Hunter S. Thompson’s awesome Hell’s Angels, in which the legendary journo infiltrates the biker gang and gets nearly killed as a reward for his journalism initiative. I think it’s a fucking amazing prize.

The judge: The blog will be sending a mystery special correspondent to observe the awards presentation.

How to win:

There are two paths to victory:
1) after accepting your Ma Murray Award, you can Tebow.
2) during your awards speech, you can thank Baby Jesus, ala Ricky Bobby.

The first award winner to either Tebow or thank Baby Jesus ON STAGE gets the book. The second person to do so gets nothing, so pay attention people.

The book will be mailed to the winner’s newsroom.

[UPDATE: Anybody who gets a photo of said Tebowing please, please, please email it to me.]

If you’re not up for an award, but work with somebody who is, let them know about the contest.

Good luck everybody.

2012 CCNAs announced; Nanaimo Daily News, Valley Sentinel lead way

March 12, 2012 3 comments

The finalists 2012 Canadian Community Newspaper Awards have been announced. There’s so bloody many of them, and it’s such a nightmare to format, that I’ll just direct you here to check out each and every category.

A couple categories haven’t been announced yet, most notably two general excellence categories.

But some early observations:

British Columbia papers and journalists earned a total of 107 finalist nods out of a total of 282 (!). Ontario had 62, while Alberta had 53. Speaks to the vast strength of the B.C. community newspaper industry compared to that in other provinces. Contemplating why community newspapers are so dominant here is worthy of a separate post.

Again, we still don’t have results from a couple of categories, but at this point the Nanaimo Daily News (let’s face it, punching below their weight in the 4,000 to 6,499 category), leads the way among B.C. papers with six nominations. An independent paper from Valemount is right behind with five nominations; The Valley Sentinel is nominated in each of the general excellence categories in its tiny class and Astrid Tevely also picked up a photo nomination. Several newspapers garnered four nominations: the Alberni Valley News [Corrected], the Chilliwack Times, the Cowichan Valley Citizen, the Gulf Islands Driftwood, and The Interior News,

The Hinton Voice leads all papers with eight finalist nods.
