At the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards luncheon held March 11 in New York, editors from Randall-Reilly’s CCJ magazine won the Jesse H. Neal Award for Best Technical Content.
The winning article, written by Jack Roberts, Randall-Reilly’s executive editor, trucking, was entitled “The Main Event,” and covered the two approaches engine makers are following to comply with 2010 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. The article appeared in the July 2009 issue of CCJ magazine. Avery Vise, editorial director of the Fleet/Dealer/Aftermarket Division, and Dean Smallwood, CCJ’s managing editor, also contributed to the article. In total, CCJ editors have won 14 Neal awards and numerous Neal certificates. This is Roberts’ second Neal award.
“Jack’s technical knowledge really comes through in this in-depth look at the often heated battle between two competing technologies,” says Linda Longton, Randall-Reilly’s senior vice president, editorial and research. “We are extremely proud of Jack and the entire CCJ editorial team for their fine work.”
