2011 Mirror Awards Luncheon

The Mirror Awards honor the reporters, editors and teams of writers who hold a mirror to the media industry for the public’s benefit. The awards were established by the Newhouse School in 2006. Today, in the face of rapid change, we continue to celebrate great journalism—and innovation and leadership—in the industry we all love. The work of our Mirror Award winners is one of the best examples of why we are proud to be associated with this industry.
