The Press Club of New Orleans held its annual awards ceremony Saturday night at Harrah’s Casino and WDSU did very well.

My colleague and 10 p.m. co-anchor Norman Robinson was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. He delivered a fantastic acceptance speech and WDSU reporter Heath Allen did a great job introducing him.

I was honored with two first place awards: Best News Anchor and Affiliated Social Media – Individual (that means I tweet and Facebook a lot and update this website).

Other winners:

– Fletcher Mackel for Best Sports Blog

– Fletcher Mackel and former executive producer Rich Kiss for Planned Event Coverage (WDSU’s “Saints on 6” on the road in Green Bay special)

– WDSU staff for Online Innovation (WDSU Parade Tracker)

– Tim Matthews for General News Photography

– Megan Spencer for News Video Editing

Congrats to the great team at WDSU!
