"...a museum that would not only detail Albany's many political scandals but also offer some possible solutions to corruption."

The first annual Nellie Bly Award for Investigative Reporting was a tremendous success!  On November 16th, we honored Susanne Craig of The New York Timesas the first recipient of this award. The event  included an elegant reception and an award ceremony, followed by a roundtable discussion on "Government and the Media." Participants included Susanne Craig, William K. Rashbaum and Kim Barker of The New York Times, Rex Smith, Editor of the Times Union, and John M. Caher, Senior Advisor for Strategic Communications with the New York State Unified Court System. The panel was moderated by Capital Pressroom radio host Susan Arbetter.  The event was attended by over one hundred people, including elected officials and other community leaders. The great success of this event will certainly set the bar high for next year's Nellie Bly Award!
