McKnight’s Senior Living is a finalist for four journalism awards from the American Society of Business Publication Editors, the organization announced Thursday.
The brand is up for national and regional 2018 Azbee Awards for Best Web News Section, for www.mcknightsseniorliving.com. Additionally, McKnight’s Senior Living is a regional finalist in the Best Print News Section and Best Regular Column, Staff Written, categories. The latter is for the Editor’s Column written by Senior Editor Lois A. Bowers.
National awards will be presented May 10 at ASBPE’s annual conference, to be held this year in Washington, D.C. Regional awards will be presented at several events around the country before that time.
McKnight’s Senior Living’s sister brand, McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, is a finalist for a total of seven Azbee Awards in 2018.
The former McKnight’s Assisted Living changed its name to McKnight’s Senior Living in 2015 and at that time expanded to include a new website (www.McKnightsSeniorLiving.com), daily e-newsletter (the Daily Briefing) and social media in addition to the bimonthly magazine that had been printed since 2003.
Since that time, McKnight’s Senior Living earned two national and four regional Azbee Awards in 2016 and one national and three regional Azbee Awards in 2017, in addition to earning awards in other competitions.
