The Berkshire Eagle is reporting it has been named a Newspaper of the Year for its Weekender edition in a competition open to publications throughout New England. The Eagle was chosen as the best weekend paper in the under-25,000 circulation category by a panel of readers selected by the New England Newspaper and Press Association. The Eagle was also named a distinguished newspaper for its weekday editions, an honor it shared with the Daily Hampshire Gazette in Northampton and The Day, in New London, Conn. The association is the professional trade organization for newspapers in New England and represents more than 450 daily, weekly and specialty newspapers. The association also honored Larry Parnass, the Eagle’s managing editor for innovation, for a 2021 series that explored changes in the world of work. “In sports, it is a huge accomplishment to win a championship, but it is far more rare to repeat,” said Fredric Rutberg, publisher of The Eagle. “This is the fifth straight year that one of our editions has been recognized as Newspaper of the Year. All the credit goes to our writers, photographers, designers and editors, but I am especially happy for our readers and advertisers – who get to read and enjoy what, year in and year out, has become New England's Newspaper of the Year.” Read more in The Berkshire Eagle.
