I have know for a few weeks that the series of reports done by Lee Zurik had been awarded the duPont award but it was nice to see it announced today. I heard the announcment via Twitter via @The_Gambit Nice to see new media spreading the news of old media around.

DuPont Awards

I look forward to working with Lee again when he comes back on air in the spring. In the meantime the first joint reporting effort of WVUE and “The Lens”: http://thelensnola.org/ will air Tuesday Jan 19th.

    I live across from the St. Roch Market. Neighbors say they overheard people outside the market discussing its imminent demolition. This sounds like a wild rumor to me, but just in case I’m putting the word out. Does anyone have info? A way to find out what is going on?? Scotty 504-701-5180
