The list of 2010 Editor and Publisher EPpy award winners is a long one, but it’s great to see WRAL.com in Raleigh, N.C., among them.
The citation is for “Best Local TV/Cable-Affiliated Website.”
We have some history, starting back in the Happy Valley imagemap days, when I was a regular visitor, first online, then in person. Maybe I should be writing a 15-years-later follow-up to my doctoral dissertation, a case study of WRAL and its site-development process; that 1999 paper was an early chapter-draft.
Anyhow, congratulations to WRAL’s John Conway and colleagues… 15 years of excellence — and in Web years, yet!
While it’s great to see an old friend on the list, the other nice surprise in this year’s EPpys is the number of site’s I’ve never visited… lots of new ideas to share with students in the fall.
