Investigative News Network Awarded Prestigious Manship Prize

Louisiana State University’s Manship School of Mass Communication has awarded the Investigative News Network (INN) with the 2011 Manship Prize for the innovative use of media to encourage civic engagement. The prize was presented to INN CEO Kevin Davis and chair of INN’s board of directors Brant Houston at Manship’s annual 1913 dinner on Sept. 9 in Baton Rouge. "This prize reflects both the role that nonprofit news has begun to play in informing the public and the unique and innovative role that INN plays in representing the nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative sector," Davis said. The Manship Prize is one of the school’s most prestigious awards and the only national award of its kind.  First presented in 1998, past recipients have included Michael Bloomberg of Bloomberg News, editor Bill Adair of PolitiFact, political strategist Joe Trippi and others.
