The Minnesota Society of Professional Journalists invites you to attend the 2014 Page One Awards Banquet, honoring the best in Minnesota journalism from 2013.
The evening will feature a keynote address by John F. Harris, the co-founder and editor in chief of Politico. Harris, a Carleton College graduate, began his newspaper career at the Washington Post, where he covered politics for more than 20 years until launching Politico in 2007 with colleague Jim VandeHei. Politico, which now has more than 180 employees, has become one of the country’s most-trafficked news sites. The company has also gained widespread attention for its efforts to create a new editorial and business model to sustain journalism during a changing media landscape. Harris wrote the New York Times bestseller, The Survivor: Bill Clinton in the White House, and co-authored a book on modern politics, The Way to Win. He’s been named one of the most influential Washington, D.C. journalists by The Telegraph and one of the most influential people in Washington, D.C. by GQ Magazine.
