Examiner’s Liz Essley Takes Top Prize in Dateline Awards

The Washington Examiner is shutting down its local operation this week, but Examiner transportation reporter Liz Essley’s week isn’t all about bad news.

Essley took the top prize in Tuesday’s “Dateline Awards” competition of the DC chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. The reporter was awarded the Robert D.G. Lewis Watchdog Award, which includes a $1,000 check, for her series of stories on the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority.

Dozens of other reporters also received awards during the ceremony, which was during the SPJ’s annual Hall of Fame induction dinner. More Examiner reporters were on the list of award winners, including Steve Contoro and Mark Flatten, along with finalists Rick Snider and Kytja Weir.

A complete list of winners can be found here.
