Sky-Hi News wins Swift Award
May 27, 2011
The Sky-Hi News has won its second consecutive Swift Award for Newsroom Excellence in a Non-Daily Operation.
“Our small but dedicated staff continues to produce outstanding results while covering Grand County,” said Drew Munro, general manager and editor of the Sky-Hi News and Middle Park Times. “I’m certainly proud of the results they achieve week in and week out, and it’s very gratifying to win this competitive award two years running.”
The award was announced last week during Swift Communications’ annual manager’s meeting in Reno, Nev. The competition pitted the Sky-Hi News against non-daily Swift newspapers from Colorado, Nevada and California. Swift Communications is the parent company of Colorado Mountain News Media, which owns the Sky-Hi News.
Included in the entry was coverage of the ongoing school funding issue in Grand County and of last October’s wildfire near Fraser.
