The Commercial Review is a 5,000 circulation award-winning daily newspaper that put together its best effort in the Hoosier State Press Association's Better Newspaper Contest in 2013.
The paper earned 13 awards in the 2013 contest, including second place for general excellence out of 26 publications in Division III (for daily newspapers with a circulation of 6,000 or fewer). Managing editor Ray Cooney led the news team with seven awards, the most of any journalist in Division III, including first place for sports commentary, sports feature photo and general news photo. Publisher Jack Ronald added a first-place honor for best editorial writer.
The CR was third in general excellence in Division III in both 2011 and ’12. It has pulled in more than 30 HSPA awards in the last three years.
