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.
- LION Publishers, finalist for investigative report of the year for covering Reno’s use of CARES Act funds for Talkspace, online therapy.
