Chron ties for 19th in urban journalism ranking

Sadly, we report the Houston daily newspaper is ranked near the bottom in the
2006 Civic Strategies
Urban Journalism Awards.

Of 21 major city newspapers that were ranked, the Hearst-owned monopoly scored better than only two other daily newspapers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Minneapolis Tribune.

The Hearst paper in San Francisco ranked fourth, the Dallas paper ranked eighth and the New York Times ranked first.

That is all.


blogHOUSTON: "Perhaps if the newspaper devoted serious coverage to Harris County government, that beat writer could get some clips and boost the Chron's ranking, but alas, that beat goes undercovered..."
