The College of Communications’ Daily Titan was named best college newspaper June 28 at the Los Angeles Press Club’s 57th annual Southern California Journalism Awards ceremony.
The student-run publication received first-place honors in the college newspaper category, competing with newspapers from UCLA, Cal State Northridge and Los Angeles City College.
“The Daily Titan demonstrates an excellence not only in its news coverage but also in its arts, entertainment and sports features, opinion page and photography. The newspaper serves as a model for other colleges and universities to follow and greatly deserves recognition as the best,” cited the LA Press Club in its award.
In other categories, Daily Titan staffer JiaHua Winnie Huang received first place for college feature photograph and second for sports photography. Marisela Gonzalez ’15 (B.A. communications-photo communications) was awarded third place for news photography.
Production of the Daily Titan is an example of one of the high impact practices offered by the college to help prepare communications students for future careers.
