  1. Congratulations Jack!
    It was nice to hear our fellow Tennesseans recognized at the NAA. It was a plesure to meet you too in the mayhem tonight. Keep up the great work.

  2. Man, those chicks are HOT! They look smart too. I bet they’re going to get a good raise after this. Perhaps be allowed to rest on their laurels for a bit.

  3. Congratulations! I met Lauren Spuhler and Jigsha Desai in October at another conference, and I’ve been quite impressed by the work down there in Knoxville. (The full list of Digital Edge winners, including KnoxNews!, is on the Digital Edge Web site, http://www.digitaledge.org). Congratulations from everyone at the Newspaper Association of America!

  4. Jack,
    I’m so glad you recognized the fab 4.
    Jigsha, Katie, Lauren and Erin…you’ve got a great future teaching us all how it’s done.
    congrats. we’re very, very proud,
