Winning Work: Great Lakes Now garners awards for collaborations, videography, environmental coverage and more
June 9, 2021 GLN Editor

Great Lakes Now’s work that appeared on-air, online, and through social media and audience engagement events garnered several awards from the Society of Professional Journalists – metro Detroit chapter.

The honors were announced in a virtual ceremony last night.

“It’s nice to be recognized,” said Sandra Svoboda, program director for the initiative, which includes a monthly TV program carried on dozens of PBS channels and hundreds of Canadian cable providers as well as the GreatLakesNow.org website, an educational initiative and dozens of annual events including Facebook watch parties.

“We’re particularly honored that so many members of our GLN team contributed to the content across platforms, most important, perhaps, the audience engagement work.”
