A word of pride, and thanks
Th e New York Press Association, a statewide group whose members include weekly
media, hosted a conference in Albany and our company won 27 awards for excellence.
Th is was a banner year at the awards for Schneps Media, which expanded last year
to become a powerhouse with more than 70 publications. Our editors, reporters, photographers
and designers took home 27 awards. Schneps Media papers also scored the
most points of any New York City-based chain.
Th ese achievements are a great refl ection of the hard work by those involved in this
team who produce the best local news coverage for our readers. It’s a source of pride for
all of us to work with such dedicated, excellent journalists.
At Th e Queens Courier, we’re especially grateful for the fi rst-place prize we earned for
Best Spot News Coverage. Our reporters earned this distinction for their coverage of
two stories in particular: a stabbing and lockdown at Benjamin Cardozo High School in
Bayside, and a devastating, fi ve-alarm fi re that destroyed a number of Sunnyside businesses.
In preparing both stories, we sought to deliver comprehensive coverage of the incidents
and the aft ermath that couldn’t be found anywhere else. We were on the ground at
both locations, talking with those aff ected and providing a real scope of both situations.
None of this, of course, would be possible without your continued support. By reading
our stories online and picking up our newspaper every week, you help advance the
mission of keeping local journalism strong, viable and independent.
We want to especially thank our online audience at QNS.com, who continue to make
ours the borough’s leading news source online. Remarkably, in March, an all-time
record 402,694 users generated 881,276 pageviews for our stories.!
All of us at Schneps Media want to thank our team for their amazing eff orts — and all
of you for your continued loyalty and dedication. Know that in the years to come, we’ll
continue doing what we do best — quality journalism.
