[Marin County] Marin IJ receives grand jury award
The Marin Independent Journal has won the 2016 News Media Excellence in Reporting Award from the California Grand Jurors’ Association for its coverage of the Marin County Civil Grand Jury.
The award, presented at the association’s annual conference Saturday in Sacramento, recognizes “individuals and media that have created positive changes in their communities by increasing awareness of the California Grand Jury system.”
The IJ was nominated for the statewide award by the Marin chapter of the grand jury, which noted that the newspaper published some 50 articles about grand jury reports over the past three years.
“Without such exposure, the public would have difficulty in learning about the grand jury’s investigations and reports,” the association said in its presentation.
