Campus News Blog: Daily Mustang Wins National Award

September 23, 2009  

Posted by Elisabeth Brubaker

The SMU Daily Mustang entered the annual Center for Innovation in College Media annual contest and came out on top.

The Daily Mustang won “Best of Show-Best Breaking News Package” for its coverage of the 2009 Presidential Inaugural. The judges commented: “Wonderfully comprehensive package. Nice clean presentation, along with informative and professionally produced content. The small updates, like the status from the airport, where a nice touch. I also enjoyed the web cam interview. Way to work all the forms of technology to leverage your coverage. Overall, the best package hands down.”

The Inaugural blog is part of the political blog on the Daily Mustang Web site. Four journalism students attended inauguration festivities in D.C filing stories, video and pictures daily along with up to the minute text messages throughout the day of the inauguration.

Congratulations to the Daily Mustang on a job well done!
