News | 2006 - Book Award


06.21.06. Chad Raphael's Investigated Reporting: Muckrakers, Regulators, and the Struggle Over Television Documentary (University of Illinois Press, 2005), has been awarded the 2005 Donald McGannon Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in Communications Policy Research. Each year, the McGannon Center presents the award to the piece of book-length scholarship that is judged to best address important social and ethical issues in communications policy.  The award carries with it a $2,000 cash prize for the author(s).  The winner of the award is determined via a rigorous review process, in which nominees are evaluated by a panel of Fordham University faculty, by three external reviewers, and by the members of the McGannon Center's Advisory Board.  Previous award winners include Lawrence Lessig's Code: And Other Laws of Cyberspace, and C. Edwin Baker's Media, Markets, and Democracy.  Over 30 nominees were considered for this year's award.

The McGannon Center congratulates Professor Raphael (University of Santa Clara) and the University of Illinois Press.

Nominations for the 2006 award currently are being accepted.  Nomination information can be found here.
