Senior contributing writer Jodi Enda’s in-depth examination of strategies newsrooms use to try to stay solvent won the prestigious prize today at Syracuse University’s Mirror Awards luncheon — an annual affair that attracts New York’s media elite. The event paid off for the school this year: The family of Dick Clark, an alum who won the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award, presented Syracuse with $5M for a state-of-the-art broadcast education facility that will open next year and be named after the American Bandstand host. The school presented its Fred M. Dressler Leadership Award To Disney/ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney and I-3 innovation award to Fivethirtyeight.com’s Nate Silver. For traditional/legacy media the winners were: Ken Auletta, best single article, for a piece in The New Yorker about The Times of India. (This is his fourth win in the seven years since the awards were introduced.) Syed Irfan Ashraf of Pakistan’s Dawn.com won for best commentary. In digital media, Joe Eskenazi of SF Weekly won best single article and Poynter Institute’s Craig Silverman took best commentary. For video or audio, the Missouri Press Association’s Doug Crews, Beth Pike, Stephen Hudnell and Scott Charton won best single story. And best profile in either digital or legacy media went to Gawker’s Adrian Chen.
