A feature story in D CEO magazine about Dallas political-PR doyenne Carol Reed has been named a winner in the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ 18th annual Best in Business competition, which honors excellence in business and financial journalism. In his article in the October 2010 issue, D CEO contributor Steve Pate wrote that “in the hardball world of Dallas politics and bond elections, there hasn’t been a cleanup hitter quite like Carol Reed. Not over the past quarter century, if ever.”
The Dallas Morning News also was honored by SABEW, which named the DMN business section one of the country’s best and gave top honors to the paper’s coverage of Southwest Airlines’ acquisition of AirTran Holdings, and to its Airline Biz blog. The journalism group also honored the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for its investigative coverage of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Fort Worth office. The awards will be presented during SABEW’s 48th annual conference in Dallas at SMU’s Collins Executive Center April 7-9.
