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. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
