Some Good News at the Voice — Finally

The Village Voice took home three awards this weekend presented by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN) as part of their annual AltWeekly Awards — this despite more than a year of internal turmoil set off by the merger of its parent company, Village Voice Media, with New Times Media in October 2005. The Voice got the nod for its music coverage (via editor Rob Harvilla), film coverage (via long-time critic J. Hoberman) and investigative reporting (via Kristen Lombardi‘s piece on ground zero’s deadly toxins).

The honors are particularly welcome if not jaw-dropping, considering the significant staff changes the Voice experienced last year, many within the very departments that took home awards from AAN.

The weekend’s biggest winner was the LA Weekly, which received top prizes in the cartoon, column, Web site design and food crit categories, among others.
