Got News? Often at the conclusion of articles, I invite you: the professional ABQ/SF public to forward your items of interest here, since my audience--both local and national--is your engaged potential clientele. It is vast. And rather comprehensive; now our site is recognized as such.

Below you’ll find the transcript from Examiner’s ‘In The News’ blog regarding our latest kudos. Please note, inclusive in my personal consideration of the term “our kudos” is largely you, the reader, without whom this publication would not thrive. Writers and readers share an organic relationship; thus rest assuredly this credential is equally yours to enjoy:

The Interactive Media Council has awarded Examiner.com with the Outstanding Achievement in the News category in 2011. The Interactive Media Awards recognize the highest standards of excellence in website content, design and development, honoring individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievement.

“Our Examiners are what make this success possible,” said Jay Keller, Category Director of Examiner.com’s News and Politics content. “Whether it’s local elections, educational reform, or national breaking news, our Examiners continue to keep their communities informed with trusted accurate and complete news information that is relevant to their lives.”

Contributors from Examiner.com’s channel have been featured on numerous times on national outlets like CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and numerous local networks and outlets as resources and experts for their insight and quality news content. Additionally, Examiner.com has had continued collaborations with the White House. In 2010 Examiner.com participated in a roundtable with White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, Cecilia Munoz, and recently participated in an on-site panel discussion at the White House with Austan Goolsbee, the chief economist for the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Examiner.com was also a key contributor of the White House Salute the Troops initiative in the fall.

“There continues to be a desire and thirst for local news and information and our writers have stepped up to fill that need,” said Keller. “Our Examiners have proven time and time again their skill in reporting and their nose for identifying the issues that are important to their readers. Congratulations to the entire news team, and also all Examiners, as this award echoes the amazing job you all are doing regardless of topic.”

Examiner.com was also a recipient of the Standard of Excellence Award by the News Media Institute in 2010.
