NewsOK Sports honored with APSE award for third straight year
This doesn’t happen often, but breaking news has reached The Digital Desk Blog.The Oklahoman and NewsOK have been honored for the third consecutive year by the Associated Press Sports Editors as one of the top 10 sports web sites. Here’s a link to my post about last year’s award.
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. It’s just another award, right? Well, no, not really. As is the case with many things in life, the company you keep says a lot about you. And in the case of the APSE Web contest awards, we’re proud to be in the company of Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and others.
Those are the sites we’re lumped in with, because our audience continues to grow at such a rapid pace. If you look at the size of the markets we’re compared to (and the sites that weren’t in the Top 10), it’s clear that sports editor Mike Sherman, his team of reporters and editors, and the web editing team on NewsOK have something to be very proud of.
So we already have a story on the website. And we’ll have a story in the newspaper tomorrow. And we’ll pat each other on the back.
Then, all the reporters and editors will go back to writing, blogging, tweeting, posting, editing, tagging, summarizing, decision-making and all the other things they all do that make us a Top 10 sports site.
