THE CITY, Jere Hester, Cape Cod Times, Jason Kolnos
In our featured “E&P Reports” interview this week, Jason Kolnos, Digital Assignment Editor with the Cape Cod Times, talks to E&P editor-in-chief Nu Yang. Kolnos, the 2019 EPPY Award winner for Best News or Event Feature under 1 million unique monthly visitors, used interviews and still photography to create a video about the one-year anniversary of the death of Police Sgt. Sean Gannon and the effects his death had in his community and with state lawmakers.
But first, Jere Hester talks to Nu about THE CITY, the newest independent, nonprofit news outlet dedicated to serving the people of New York. THE CITY recently won three EPPY Awards in the under 1 million unique monthly visitors category for Best Daily News Website, plus Best Collaborative Investigative/Enterprise Reporting for “On the Brink of Being Homeless in a Sanctuary City” and Best News or Event Feature on a Website for “A Solitary Death Sparks Prison Reform Push.”
