Just before the last provincial election, then Premier Jim Prentice, in discussing Alberta’s economic situation, uttered words Albertans will never forget.
He said, “In terms of who is responsible, we all need only look in the mirror.”
Our News Director, Bob Layton, got so many calls from people unhappy with that comment that he wrote an editorial that was shown on Global News.
Saturday night at the annual Radio, Television, Digital News Association convention in Toronto, Bob was awarded the National Sam Ross Award for Excellence in Editorials, for his editorial called Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall.
Bob acknowledges the important contribution of the Global TV staff involved in this award, including Producer Kevin Jesus, ENG Photographer Cam Cook, and Editor Erin Calihoo. (bl/td)
