'Best Of Charlotte' and Me

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 8/04/2009 3 comments
Creative Loafing's annual "Best Of Charlotte" issue hits newsstands this week and is available online today. Click here to see hundreds of winners--readers and critics' picks--in the Best Of Charlotte 2009.

I'm honored to receive and humbled by my first Best Of Charlotte Award. In the Media section, I won "Best Post-Print Journalists," an award I share with fellow journalist Mary C. Curtis. Mary and I are friends in addition to being colleagues, and I congratulate her on this award.

I'm currently in Tampa and will be here all week for the NABJ Convention. While I'm out networking, maybe I'll brag to some of these big-name, national journalists (from CNN, ESPN, New York Times, etc.) that I just won a "Best Of Charlotte" award. Tampa has a local Creative Loafing edition as well, so some of the convention attendees will be familiar with the process. My mama's gon' be so proud.
