This Is Reno wins more national journalism awards in 2021

By Bob Conrad

This Is Reno received this year local, statewide and national awards for reporting, diversity efforts and advertising excellence.

“Our hard-working journalists made these awards happen,” said Bob Conrad, editor. “They suffered a lot of unncessary hostility and abuse covering COVID-19 and numerous, dangerous protests. 

“Getting recognized by prominent journalism organizations shows their work had an impact. We also hope it shows they cover their community in a big-hearted way even when the topics are not always flattering.”

The following organizations recognized This Is Reno this year:

  • National Association of Black Journalists, Student Achievement, General News Reporting on Reno riot coverage.
  • Nevada Press Association, Advertising Excellence third place award. 
  • Society for Professional Journalists Las Vegas, Third Place Innovator of the Year Award with Noticerio Móvil and KUNR Reno Public Radio for collaborating on providing Spanish-language COVID-19 reporting.

This Is Reno would appreciate your support. We are accepting tax-deductible donations to cover housing issues in 2022. Any amount is appreciated.
