Times takes awards
The Tunica Times stood out as one of Mississippi’s best little newspapers, capturing 12 awards in the Mississippi Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest, Editorial Division.
Held in conjunction with the Tri State Press Convention at Harrah’s Convention Center in Robinsonville, the BNC awards luncheon brought winners to the podium on June 26. Times’ staffers receiving awards were Meg Coker, Jo-Ellen Sharpe, Peter Thomas and Brooks Taylor. The newspaper itself also earned a nod, capturing a third place for best front page.
