City Press editor wins top award

2011-03-15 11:03

City Press editor-in-chief Ferial Haffajee won the National Press Club’s editor of the year award for 2010 at a function held last night.

Her uncompromising stance on excellence ensured that she got the nod from members of the National Press Club who nominated her in the favourite editor category.

“Her influential voice continues to be heard whether it is on official platforms like the South African National Editors’ Forum or on her hugely popular Twitter account.

“She constantly advances the voices of other women, in her newspaper and on other platforms, and is a trusted source of analysis about the state of our nation,” said National Press Club chairperson Yusuf Abramjee.

The entries were judged by a panel of various independent experts and academics. The winner of the editor of the year category was chosen by the executive committee.
