Coast Reporter picked up two silver awards for general excellence and for classifieds at the 2014 Ma Murray provincial newspaper awards last Saturday night in Richmond.

Coast Reporter was narrowly beaten out by its sister paper the Whistler Question in the general excellence category for top newspaper in its circulation class (10,001-28,000) and was edged out by the Yukon News in the classified award category.

The judges had this to say in the general excellence category: “Coast Reporter really seems to reflect the diverse cultural background of its community members. That diversity is also reflected in the news content, with stories that run the gamut of topics. Editorials and letters are rightly given ample space to voice a range of commentary. Well-balanced writing and well-placed advertising come together in a very nice package overall.”

The judges had this to say about the classified section: “Great layout and organization of ads in a format and position relevant to readers. Kudos for the Call the Experts and At Your Service sections. Well done!”
