Nevada honors Tahoe Tribune for excellence
The Tahoe Daily Tribune was honored with 26 Nevada Press Association awards at the association’s annual convention Sept. 23 at the Sunset Station in Henderson, Nev., east of Las Vegas.
“I could not be more proud of our staff,” said Lisa Donahue, Tribune managing editor. “We cleaned up the place. We placed first in just about every category.”
“It is nice to be recognized for all of the hard work each department does in order to produce a high-quality publication for the South Shore community.”
The Tribune competed against Nevada papers in the small daily category. The Tribune is able to compete in both California and Nevada press awards since it covers issues on both sides of the state line. The winners’ entries were published during the 1999 calendar year.
The advertising department received the highest honor of General Excellence. This category is open to all papers.
“What a treat to beat the larger circulation dailies,” Donahue said.
“The Tribune’s advertising department is committed to serving the South Lake Tahoe business community and it is always gratifying when we are recognized for our effort,” added Paul Middlebrook, Tribune ad director.
