IBJ won seven national journalism awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference June 25 in Providence, R.I.

Judges from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism evaluated 487 entries from 45 publications, including newspapers in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. All told, 108 gold, silver or bronze awards were handed out.

IBJ brought home gold in two categories, including best investigative reporting for Cory Schouten’s April 2010 special report on former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi’s intervention in a major drug case against the client of one of his business partners.

Citing the “impressive combination of documents and on-the-record human sources,” judges called the story “a classic piece of investigative reporting that uncovers a clear conflict of interests by the prosecuting attorney.”

Managing Editor Greg Andrews also won top honors for his weekly “Behind the News” column. “This is a well-written, fact-driven column, based on strong reporting,” the judges said.

IBJ’s other prizes:

• Silver. Best industry-specific e-newsletter for reporter J.K. Wall’s Health Care & Reform Weekly e-mail.

• Bronze. Best website for IBJ.com.

• Bronze. Best multimedia story/editorial feature for Multimedia Producer Mason King’s videos that ran with a February 2010 profile of Scotty’s Brewhouse owner Scott Wise.

• Bronze. Best use of photography, illustrations for a collection of entries submitted by the IBJ art department under the guidance of Creative Director Deborah Strzeszkowski.

• Bronze. Best front page for designer/illustrator David Vrabel and former Creative Director Jo Hohlbein. They were honored for an April 2010 design that included an illustration of Biglari Holdings CEO Sardar Biglari and his business idol, Warren Buffett.

Los Angeles-based AABP is a national organization representing 64 independent magazine and newspaper members in the United States, Canada and Australia.

IBJ also won a national prize in April at the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ conference in Dallas. King’s biweekly “Inside Dish” video features on the business of running restaurants earned a “Best in Business” award.•

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
