The Fair Media Council announces the best in news, as judged by the ultimate critic: The public.
While winners will be formally recognized on Tuesday, March 28 at FMC’s annual Folio Awards luncheon, the biggest media event on Long Island, you may view the winners here, and see the winning news stories.
“When you see the breadth and the depth of the winning news stories, two things are striking,” said Jaci Clement, CEO and Executive Director of the Fair Media Council. “The first is, how thoroughly Long Island is being covered — we’re light years from where we were a decade ago. The second thing, is what an outstanding job the community leaders who are judging the news are doing. These are absolutely stunning accomplishments on both sides of the coin for a program that’s more important than ever, as the quality of news and media in our country is now a trending topic.”
The Folio Awards luncheon will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 28, 2017 at NYIT’s de Seversky Mansion in Old Westbury, Long Island. Tickets and sponsorships are still available, but selling fast. All sales are final sale, no refunds. (Details on packages may be found in the downloadable reservation form here.)
