NHBR reporting wins national award
New Hampshire Business Review was honored by a national association of business publications for its coverage of the events leading to the Enterasys Networks trial, the trial itself and its aftermath.
The newspaper won a Bronze Award for Best Coverage of Local Breaking News for the work of staff writer Bob Sanders, who was recognized for his “dogged coverage” of the trial in U.S. District Court in Concord. Sanders’ stories appeared daily on our online news product, NHBR Daily. He also wrote longer analytical pieces that appeared in the print edition of New Hampshire Business Review.
All told, 59 publications submitted entries in the Alliance of Area Business Publications competition. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the alliance has 74 independent magazine and newspaper members in the United States, Canada and Australia.
In addition, Laurie Storey-Manseau, owner of the Storey-Manseau marketing firm and a regular contributor to New Hampshire Business Review, received an Award of Distinction in the national Communicator Awards competition for her “PR Briefing” articles that appear monthly in the newspaper.
Her articles cover a variety of topics, including marketing ethics, branding and the power of positive customer service.
Her agency also was honored in the competition for an invitation and program book created for the Boys and Girls Club of Manchester and a press kit folder for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Hampshire.
