King's alumni and faculty on showcase at Atlantic Journalism Awards

King’s alumni and faculty were well represented at the 34th Atlantic Journalism Awards, held May 9th in Halifax.  King’s professor Stephen Kimber won three gold medals and a silver as King’s affiliated journalists took home 24 medals in total.

Nadine Fownes (BA ’87) won a gold and a silver medal in the category of Best Page Presentation: Newspaper, with Coast founder Kyle Shaw (Bsc  ’91, BJ ’92) leading a team featuring Ryan Chisholm (FYP ’05) and Allison Saunders (BA ’08) that was awarded the other silver medal in that category.

Kimber’s wins for Atlantic Magazine article, Print Feature Writing, and Commentary: Any Medium led radio newscast award winner Mitch Cormier to quip “I’m extremely grateful that Stephen Kimber doesn’t read morning news anywhere in Atlantic Canada.”

Michael Landry (BJH ’07), Christina Harnett (BJ ’96), Lois Legge (BJ ’84) and Chris O’Neill-Yates (BJ ’93) also won gold medals, and King’s Professor Stephen Puddicombe (MJ ’13) won a silver for Enterprise Reporting: Radio.
