Other nods from the Times: Catharine Hamm‘s travel section won third place for “Reader Engagement;” Christopher Goffard took third prize in the “General Feature” category; and the Booster Shots health blog and Daily Dish both earned distinctions in “Blogging.” Roger Ebert, incidentally, took home first prize in that category for his work on the Chicago Sun-Times website.
