Award-winning Journalism Covering Palm Beach North
The Palm Beach Post demonstrates on a daily basis, the work its reporters, columnists, photographers and videographers does is woven into the fabric of what makes Palm Beach North such a wonderful place to live, work and play.
The Palm Beach Post staff won seven first-place awards at the Florida Press Club Awards last month, honored for its investigative work, its daily beat reporting, feature writing and commentary.
“These latest honors are well-deserved recognition of the quality journalism delivered by our newsroom every day,” said Publisher and Palm Beach North resident Tim Burke, who also serves on the Chamber’s board of directors. “The Post is committed to making a difference in our community with in-depth reporting that is most important to our readers on our digital and print platforms.”
The Post’s staff – individually or in teams – were finalists in 17 categories at the Press Club’s 65th annual awards. The Post’s honors included three nominations for special awards, including the night’s top prize, the Frances DeVore Award for Public Service.
