The Tablet, Nuestra Voz, and DeSales Media Group were big winners at the annual Catholic Press Awards Banquet, the culmination of the 2018 Catholic Media Conference held June 12-15 in Green Bay, Wisc.
“I’m just a loyal member of the church who is trying hard to tell the story of Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens.”
The Tablet Editor Ed Wilkinson described himself in those words after receiving the St. Francis de Sales Distinguished Communicator Award at the 27th annual diocesan celebration of the World Communications Day, May 9.
DeSales Media Group announced on Tuesday that long-time editor of The Tablet, Ed Wilkinson, will take on an expanded role within the company beginning in June.
Dear Editor: I wish to thank you for allowing me to offer my opinions and reminiscences in the pages of The Tablet during this past year. Since May, you’ve published four of my letters in the “Readers’ Forum,” as well as two online. Those follow my first letter in the fall of 2008, in which I offered a few anecdotes about Bishop Loughlin H.S. (copies of which I have tucked away somewhere in a box of family photos).
The Tablet and its staff was cited 20 times June 23 at the Catholic Press Awards Banquet held in Quebec City, Canada.
