Northern NSW Journalism Awards Announced
Tuesday, 12 August 2008
The wild storms that savaged the central coast of New South Wales last June, stranding a coal ship carrying 770 tonnes of fuel, inspired many of the winning stories recognised at Northern NSW Journalism Awards over the weekend. Judges praised NBN television reporter and the region's Journalist of the Year, Paul Lobb, for his ?compelling, entertaining and extremely newsworthy body of work,? covering the plight of the Pasha Bulker, which lay aground off Nobby's Beach in Newcastle for three weeks. His reports ?brought to life the human drama? judges said. View a full list of winners here.
