Best Web Publication


The Bronx Journal
website, www.thebronxjournal.com, won a 2011 Murray Kempton Award for its Web design. Created and managed by many Lehman College students in a workshop that is part of the college's Multimedia Journalism program, the site features text (news stories and blogs), broadcast and multimedia stories that concern Bronx residents; the site is multilingual (Chinese, French, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish). The judges were impressed with its clean design, ease of navigation, scope of coverage (from upcoming events to sports, culture and opinion) and ambition, which appears to be to meet Bronx residents' need for essential local information. The Bronx Journal's faculty advisors are Christine McKenna, Miguel Perez and Elaine Rivera.
