I am proud to announce that last year this blog won the Blogtastic Award from the Fair Media Counsil at their annual Folio Awards.
The Folio Awards are given to local news and media in the New York metro area (mostly TV and newspaper) to honor significant achievement for work that is relevant to the community.
The Blogtastic Award was awarded to the Long Island Bankruptcy Blog (LongIslandBankruptcyBlog.com) for being the blog that was most relevant to the community. I was recognized as publisher of the blog.
The awards were presented at a luncheon where the keynote address was presented by Dateline NBC correspondent and Emmy-Award winner Chris Hansen, who is the investigative reporter best known for his work on “To Catch a Preditor.”
The award ceremony was attended by over 500 people at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury and a total of 39 awards were presented.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was one of the award presenters, as were several network news reporters. Other award winners included WNBC, Fox 5, WPIX, WCBS News Radio, Long Island Business News, and Long Island Press.
This past year was the first time there was an award for a blog.
