The Daily News took top honors in business reporting and editorials in the 2016 Tennessee Associated Press Broadcasters and Media Editors Awards.

The awards for reporting in 2015 were announced Saturday, April 9, during a ceremony in Nashville.

The awards for newspaper, television and radio journalism statewide are presented by Tennessee Associated Press and Middle Tennessee State University School of Journalism.

Senior Reporter Andy Meek took first and second place in the Newspaper Division 3 business news category.

The first place honor is for Meek’s story on new leadership at Ardent Studios. Jody Stephens became the recording studio’s new CEO following the death of Ardent founder John Fry. The second place award was for Meek’s story on the business of art, a look at the smaller-scale local businesses run by individual artists.

Sports columnist/reporter Don Wade took top honors in Division 3 for sports-outdoors reporting with a portfolio of stories.

The Daily News also took first place in the Division 3 category for editorials. The award is for a portfolio of editorials during 2015.

In the features category, Meek’s story on the Memphis food truck industry won second place honors and Wade’s story on Memphis Redbirds broadcaster Steve Selby placed third.
