Best New Feature in a Denver Daily - 2002
"Talk Back to the Media"
Located on the only Rocky Mountain News page in the Sunday Denver Post, "Talk Back to the Media" allows disgruntled information consumers and assorted insiders to air their grievances in a public forum -- and members of the journalism community have been responding in kind. For instance, Channel 7 was recently taken to task by four members of the publicity staff at Denver International Airport, prompting reporter John Ferrugia to reply with the sort of venom that's usually reserved for nasty phone calls the public never gets a chance to hear. The results give viewers, listeners and readers a fascinating look at the men and women behind the media curtain.
