Tennessee broadcasters, newspapers honored at AP journalism awards


NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 28, 2015 _ The Tennessee AP News Excellence Awards for broadcasters and newspapers were presented Saturday night in Nashville at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University.


Kevin Hardy of the Chattanooga Times Free Press won the inaugural John Seigenthaler Award for Excellence in honor of the longtime publisher and editor of The Tennessean and a tireless advocate for civil rights and the First Amendment. The award was sponsored by the John Seigenthaler Chair of Excellence in First Amendment Studies at Middle Tennessee State University. Hardy’s investigation into the hiring practices at Chattanooga State Community College led to the departure of the college president and other top college officials.
