Echo Editor Wins Online Award
A digital editor from the Sunderland Echo was recently honoured at a regional awards ceremony.
Lee Hall won the prize for Best Online Contribution at the Northeast Press Awards ceremony, which was staged earlier this month at the Customs House in South Shields.
Also receiving a mention in the digital category was Robert Brooks from the Northumberland Gazette, who was highly commended for his online work.
The Gazette and the Echo picked up a clutch of awards between them at the event, with a full list of winners available to view at holdthefrontpage.co.uk.
Echo Editor Rob Lawson said of his paper’s recent triumphs: “I’m delighted at the success of the awards and that so many of the Echo’s talented journalists were recognised.”
Hall’s award represents the Echo’s second digital achievement this year, the first coming in January when it doubled its online readership figures from the same time in 2007.
