Loeb award to Hiltzik

| 1 Comment

L.A. Times columnist Michael Hiltzik won a Gerald R. Loeb Award for commentary today in New York. The judges said his "Golden State" columns in the Business section "are smart, angry, and sometimes, laugh out-loud funny, tackling complex subjects in a lively accessible style with a strong voice and a real sense of being on the readerís side." The Loebs, administered at UCLA, are regarded by many business reporters and editors as the top journalism prize other than the Pulitzers. Full list of winners
