Kudos To People Newspapers

Award-winning Headline
Award-winning headline

Before I switched over to the magazine side at D Magazine Partners, I worked as assistant managing editor at People Newspapers. They obviously haven’t missed me over there as they’re racking up all sorts of awards. The staff recently won Best Front Page from the Local Media Association (thanks to work done by art director Rick Lopez and online creative director Valerie Wong). Dan Koller, the fearless managing editor, won Best Headline for “This Neighborhood Rules,” which you see in the photo. Dan was also named third for Editor of the Year, but as you’ll see in this link, he wanted that fact downplayed. So, fine, I’ll downplay that. But I can’t resist linking to a clip of Dan Koller during his time as an intern on the Late Show With David Letterman. You’ve maybe seen it before. If not, watch it. (That’s Dan in the green top.)
