TheStreet Earns Four SABEW Awards

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet (TST) won four awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers in the association's 16th annual financial-journalism contest.

The Shanghai Numbers, written by TheStreet's Robert Holmes and Scott Eden, earned two online awards. The series investigated Chinese stocks and the Securities and Exchange Commission's probe into fraud conspiracies.

The interactive online media series earned TheStreet awards for "Investigative" as well as "Creative Use Across Multiple Platforms." TheStreet was ranked among large Web sites, which garner more than 2.5 million average unique monthly visitors.

Eden also won best feature writing for his work on The Pirates' Toll, which examined the growing problem of piracy as a threat to international shipping.

Senior columnist Adam Feuerstein won the award for Opinion/Column for his well-read daily biotechnology columns.

"We are proud to be recognized for the quality and originality of our coverage, which we have always considered our hallmark," said TheStreet Editor-in-Chief Glenn Hall. "Amid all the upheaval in the media industry today, TheStreet has been expanding to fill the void and ensure investors and consumers are getting the information they need. It is rewarding to be recognized by SABEW for our efforts."

There were 168 winners out of 904 entries, the highest entry total since SABEW began the Best in Business competition in 1995.

"We spent a lot of time and effort revamping this year's Best in Business contest to better reflect the evolving delivery of financial news," SABEW President Rob Reuteman said. "Judging from the increased variety of winning entrants and first-time winners, those efforts bore fruit."

TheStreet CEO Daryl Otte said the company's integration of video and interactive features into written content "serves as the template for where the industry is headed."

The contest honored excellence in business journalism in 65 categories across all news platforms, including newspapers, magazines and Web sites.

The awards will be presented on the final day of the 48th annual conference at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, which runs from April 7 to 9.
