A finalist in the 2012 Mirror Awards contest

On Monday, Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications announced the finalists for this year’s Mirror Awards — a competition that recognizes reporters who cover the media industry.

Other finalists include The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta; American Journalism Review Editor and Vice President Rim Rieder; Change the Ratio’s Rachel Sklar; and journalists writing for The New York Times, The Washington Post and more. I’m humbled to be in such great company.

I’m one of only two finalists to be nominated in two categories:

Single best article, digital media:

Best commentary, digital media

I’m happy these stories were recognized; I nominated them because I put a lot of thought and time into them, and because they seemed to resonate with readers based on the responses they got.

All finalists are invited to attend a June 13 luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, where winners will be announced. I’m planning to go to the event, which Anderson Cooper is hosting. I’m looking forward to meeting the other finalists — many of whom I’ve interviewed by phone but have never talked with in person. And of course I’m excited about having an excuse to visit one of my favorite cities.

Thanks to everyone for all the congratulatory remarks on Twitter and Facebook!
