Print More

Gregory Moore, editor of the Denver Post, last night was given the Benjamin C. Bradlee Award as Editor of the Year by the National Press Foundation for leading his paper's coverage of last summer’s Aurora, Co., theater shooting spree. The foundation, a leading journalism training organization, noted that the episode “occurred at midnight after the paper had gone to bed and relied almost exclusively on social media to inform the community of the horrific events that evening.” The Post’s reporting on Aurora has frequently been cited by Crime & Justice News. Moore has been editor of the Post since 2002. He joined the paper after a 16-year career at the Boston Globe. The foundation last night gave a special citation for online reporting for Homicide Watch DC for the website’s “passionate online coverage of otherwise uncovered murders in the District of Columbia.” Site founders Laura and Chris Amico accepted the award. The main award in that category was given to the the Wall Street Journal for its coverage of the Supreme Court's Affordable Care Act decision.
