Wall Street Journal Goes Hitless
(Crain’s) — This may have been a good year for circulation at The Wall Street Journal, but it’s been a lousy year for prestige. The nation’s largest weekday paper was completely shut out this week in the competitive categories of the Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism.
It was the first time that the Journal has gone hitless at the Loebs since 1975, according to the UCLA Anderson School of Management, which administers the prizes. The paper’s deputy managing editor, Alix Freedman, did receive the Lawrence Minard Editor Award, which is not a competitive prize.
