Temple's journo program continues to kick ass

Remember a few days back we mentioned how the Temple journalism program is producing entrepreneurial, kick-ass journalists? Well there's even more accolades to be found in the latest Citypaper, in their annual awards issue called "The Big Vision Issue." Photo shown here was taken by Mark Stehle for Citypaper.

Scope page 26, or click here, for the section called "Codebreaker" aka people blazing their own damn trail in media in the city. And the winner is..Shannon McDonald, the recent Temple grad who inked the story about the racist officer last year and got all sorts of attention for it. Besides calling her gutsy, the article also highlights her project.

And there's more. One of the honorable mentions was, co-created by Temple grads Christopher Wink, Sean Blanda, and Brian James Kirk.

Both of these websites realized a lack of coverage in certain areas in Philly, and decided to start websites to fill that void. Kudos, you make us proud.

Thanks for the love and congrats to Shannon, too.

Oh, and your NEast Philly is broken; needs "http://" protocol

Keep doing good work.
