The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball Wins The Toner

For her reporting on the 2012 presidential election, The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball was selected as this year’s winner of the Toner Prize.

“Ms. Ball’s coverage is a superb example of journalism that helps us understand our electoral process and illuminates the people and policies that shape us as a nation,” said Lorraine Branham, dean of Syracuse University’s S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, in a release. “This is reporting with the engaging detail and informed insights that were hallmarks of the reporting of Robin Toner.”

The Toner Prize, sponsored by the Newhousse School of Public Communications, carries $5,000 and is part of the larger Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting. Toner was the first woman to serve as the national political correspondent for the NYT.

The 2012 competition for the Toner Prize drew 118 entries, according to the release.

Congratulations to Ball.
