Andrea Bernstein and Amy Eddings of WNYC-New York Public Radio have been recognized with a certificate in the 2003 IRE Awards for their report "Handshake Hotels."
The organization Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc. will present the awards at a June conference in Atlanta. IRE is a nonprofit that supports investigative journalism and is based at the Missouri School of Journalism.
It described the WNYC work as "an absorbing report inside the ramshackle world of New York City's 'Hotels for the Homeless Program' and the lax regulations and poor communication that allowed administrators to spend $180 million a year on dangerous, dirty and derelict housing for the city's needy population."
Top honors in the annual awards went to a print story about U.S. "Tiger Force" soldiers in Vietnam killing civilians, won by The Blade of Toledo, Ohio, as well as a book on the American tax system by David Cay Johnston.
