www.HartfordBusiness.com June 27, 2016 • Hartford Business Journal 31 Applause. (x4!) Central Connecticut's Trusted Business News Source In Print. Online. In Person. www.HartfordBusiness.com Delivering Business. W e congratulate the entire Hartford Business Journal editorial team for receiving two GOLD awards and two SILVER awards at the 2016 Alliance of Area Business Publications Awards. With 644 entries from 46 publications in the U.S., Canada and Australia, judges from the University of Missouri School of Journalism selected the winners. Being honored by our peers reflects the hard work HBJ's editorial staff puts in daily to inform the region's business community. And the trust of our readers is what keeps us striving for excellence. Here are the awards and what the judges had to say: Gold: Best Explanatory Journalism CT's Silver Tsunami By Greg Seay, Matt Pilon, Brad Kane, John Stearns, Greg Bordonaro. "Great example of 'what's happening' versus 'what happened' journalism. This adventure in demographics turns on personal perspectives and unusual angles overlooked by others." Gold: Best Scoop Key CT biz leaders on hook for Back9 bets By Greg Bordonaro. "Good source cultivation by the journal's editor paid off with a page-one story revealing the identities of leading Connecticut business executives who invested in a start-up TV media company that promised glamour but instead collapsed." Silver: Best Recurring Feature Executive Profiles By John Stearns. "The subjects of these profiles are a rich, eclectic mix of professionals whose personal visions inform the values of their companies." Silver: Best Editorial Transatlantic flight subsidy misguided By Greg Bordonaro. "With Connecticut facing billion- dollar deficits, this editorial questions the sensibility of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's offer to subsidize an Irish airline's plan to begin transatlantic flights from Dublin to the state. This editorial deploys a key quality of great journalism: history and background to provide context as a way to scrutinize an always-important subject— airports and government- business partnerships."
