Recently, the Times Union has received numerous awards for its editorial and advertising content. On the news side, the paper in June was again honored as a Newspaper of Distinction for being the “best mid-sized newspaper” in the state, according to the New York State Associated Press Association. It is the fourth time since 2012 that the paper has been so named.
On the advertising side, New York Newspapers Advertising & Marketing Executives honored the paper with 15 awards in April. That was more than any other paper of a similar size.
None of this would happen without a lot of hard work and professional dedication. So the Newspaper Guild wants to recognize all that our members do across all departments to make these awards happen…
On Tuesday, July 11, the Guild will host a get-together for all members at Wolfs 1-11 on Wolf Road. Drinks and snacks provided starting about 5:30 p.m. Give yourself and your colleagues a round of applause. You have earned it.
And also take the opportunity to meet our two newest board members, Amanda Fries and Rob Gavin. Amanda is your new First Vice President and Rob is your new Chief Steward.
