Globe hits ‘grand slam’ at APSE judging contest


The Globe was one of only two newspapers in the nation with circulation above 175,000 to win the “grand slam” of judging (recognition in daily, Sunday, special section categories, and website) in the Associated Press Sports Editors’ contest held at Indianapolis. The Washington Post was the other. The Globe received 12 top-10 honors in the judging.

Top-10 writing honors went to Bob Hohler for investigative reporting (on Robert Cantu) and breaking news (on suspected marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev); to Dan Shaughnessy and Christopher L. Gasper as columnists; to Ben Volin, Shalise Manza Young, Sean Smith, Luke Knox and Gasper for project work on the evolution of wide receivers; and to Baxter Holmes for beat reporting on the Celtics.

The Globe also garnered three honors in multimedia: for as a top website with more than 2 million monthly unique users; for Luke Knox, Chiqui Esteban, Javier Zarracina, and Dan Shaughnessy for the “Inside the Red Sox Clubhouse” graphic on; and for Gary Dzen, Bob Ryan, Joe Sullivan, and Alvin Chang for “New England’s Best College Baller” graphic on
