NewsBusters managing editor Ken Shepherd won the award for “Nonprofit Blogger of the Year” at Blog Bash Thursday night at Wolfgang Puck's Sunset Room near the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Ken’s been with the MRC since he started as an intern in the fall of 1998, and graduated from the University of Maryland in 2001. A native of Severn, Maryland, he now lives in New Carrollton, Maryland with his wife Laura and his children Mercy and Abraham.
The nominations are made based on a blogger’s body of work. (Ken’s blog is here.) The other nominees for Nonprofit Blogger of the Year were David French of the American Center for Law and Justice, Charlie Kirk at Turning Point USA, and Jim Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute.
Feel free to shoot Ken some congratulations for this award at @KenShepherd on Twitter (and follow, please).
Last year’s winner of this award was Jeff Dunetz of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, who now contributes to our MRCTV Blog. Our former MRC colleague Joe Schoffstall won Best Investigative Post last year for "Non-partisan’ group paid $1 million to produce positive Obamacare stories."
Other alums of NewsBusters were nominated for Best Investigative Post of the year:
- Rusty Weiss, Dem Councilwoman: Ferguson Shows Government Is Going to ‘Round Up and Execute’ Blacks
- Lachlan Markay, EXCLUSIVE: Democracy Alliance Network Revealed
Congrats to Lachlan for joining Ken in the winner's circle.
