Steve Earley wins
New York AP awards


Recent journalism alum Steve Earley, a former Pendulum news editor, was part of reporting teams that took two prizes in the under-25,000-circulation division of the New York State Associated Press Association Awards.

Steve and other reporters from his paper, the Daily Freeman, won a second place in the spot-news category for coverage of a shooting at the Hudson Valley Mall; this story was prominent in national news at the time. Steve's articles in the package included a piece on the scene outside the mall during the shooting and its aftermath and one on the media circus inspired by the event.

In addition, Freeman reporters earned a third place for a series of articles on flooding in April - Steve wrote six of the articles in this award-winning package, including the lead stories the first three days of coverage.
