Among cheers, hollering and a clear shortage of alcohol, City Weekly editorial staff picked up a combined 13 awards last night from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Utah Headliners Chapter.


Recognizing the best in the region’s newsprint, magazines, radio, television, photography and multimedia markets, the event recognized the top picks from more than 800 entries this year. Special prizes included the Josephine Zimmerman Pioneer in Journalism Award to Deseret NewsGerry Avant and the Don Baker Investigative Reporting Award to The Salt Lake Tribune’s staff for their continued coverage of sexual assaults on Utah college campuses.
