Roger Ebert Honored by National Society of Newspaper Columnists

Every year, the National Society of Newspaper Columnists gives out awards in a variety of categories (General Interest, Humor, etc., all subdivided by circulation: thus "General Interest — Over 50,000 Circulation," etc.). As reported by the Associated Press, they announced their winners Saturday evening. In the category "Online, Blog, and Multimedia Column — over 100,000 monthly unique visitors," they once again awarded Roger first place. Slate news editor Chad Lorenz, the judge in this category, wrote, "Even in his final year, Ebert’s transcendent meditations on the pleasures of experience and the nature of human consciousness – what it truly means to exist – are a fitting coda for a life of unparalleled column writing."

Roger had previously won first place for "Blog Columns" in 2010, first place in the revised category "Online, Blog, and Multimedia Column — over 100,000 monthly unique visitors" in 2011, and 2nd place in that category in 2012.
