NewsOK Sports honored for best multimedia coverage

In December, the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) announced its annual top 10 honorees for best website. NewsOK Sports was ranked among the nation’s best for the third consecutive year.

And then yesterday in Florida at the annual conference, The sports department was honored again. This time, it was for the efforts in the area of multimedia for NewsOK and The Oklahoman.

And once again, I point to the company we keep in these kinds of awards. Among the top 10 list in this group:

Those are some of the largest news-gathering operations in the country. But ranking among the world’s best in the area of covering sports and covering sports with aggressive multimedia journalism is no surprise to us here in Oklahoma City. Though there was no ranking of the top 10 in the list, I would expect our work to be at the top in the fictional BCS of multimedia sports coverage.

We see the reporters analyzing games on video every night. We read reporters’ blogs on every subject we cover. We participate in their live chats each weekday. We follow them on Facebook, Twitter and more. We see the end result of the hard work of the people behind the scenes packaging it all together on NewsOK and on our mobile applications for The Oklahoman.

And we watch the group in our sports department pull this off every single day.

So here’s to another tip of the hat to the sports editor Mike Sherman and the sports department for their fine work.
