COURIER’s NC Newsroom, Cardinal & Pine, Takes Home nine Awards from NC Press Association Contest

Charlotte, NC — An impressive nine pieces of COURIER outlet Cardinal & Pine’s journalism have been awarded prizes by the North Carolina Press Association.

C&P was awarded five first place, one second place, and three third place prizes in the association’s annual journalism contest

COURIER’s reporting is unique in that it is produced by and for the local communities it reports on — delivering the news to folks where they are: on social media and in their email inboxes. It is high quality journalism adapted for today’s audiences.

C&P’s nominated pieces are just two examples of the daily content that is produced and distributed by COURIER’s eight state newsrooms across the country. Our newsrooms distill and localize the most pressing news stories and topics, and present them in skimmable and shareable formats.

The announcement comes on the heels of COURIER’s release of data from an RCT experiment in Virginia validating the effectiveness of its unique model of news distribution via boosting on social media platforms.

“COURIER combines award winning journalism with distribution tactics that ensure underserved audiences actually see our work,” said Tara McGowan, founder and Publisher of COURIER. “Our team at Cardinal & Pine furthers our mission every day and these newest accolades further prove the quality of journalism that they produce.”
