NHBR honored for General Excellence

The New Hampshire Business Review won first place for General Excellence at the Feb. 7 New England Press Association 54th annual convention and trade show.

The newspaper was honored in the biweekly category. NHBR reporter Bob Sanders took a second-place award for General News Story for his coverage of Enterasys Networks, the spin-off of Cabletron Systems.

According to the judges, NHBR is “everything a business newspaper should be; newsy, informative, point-of-view, great environments, excellent layout, useful and forward looking. There is plenty of news to fill the pages. The paper is an outstanding example of what a newspaper should be.”

It was the most recent in a string of awards NHBR has won in the last year.

In May, NHBR editor Jeff Feingold was named the U.S. Small Business Administration¹s 2003 National Small Business Journalist of the Year. He also won similar awards from the New England and New Hampshire SBA offices.

In December, NHBR was honored by the state Department of Resources and Economic Development with the Commissioner¹s Award for Media Excellence in recognition of the newspaper¹s “exceptional coverage of state economic development issues.”
