FSC is honored to be recognized among the best media outlets in New Orleans for a 2012 Press Club of New Orleans award. At the awards dinner on Saturday, July 21, members of the FSC social media team were overjoyed to receive first place in the Independent Blog category for the client GoNOLA.com.
GoNOLA is the tourism blog created in conjunction with parent company New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corp., also an FSC client. The mission of GoNOLA is to encourage interest and ultimately visitation to our great city by means of showcasing its most attractive attributes – providing us with infinite content – through a local lens. The award was given to Social Media Director Andy Kutcher and account executives Sally Tunmer and Ashley Orr who never tire of promoting and writing about New Orleans. We share this award with our astute team of local bloggers who provide their authoritative perspective, letting readers in on the real New Orleans.
It was a wonderful night with great company, including host Stan Verrett, co-host of ESPN’s SportsCenter, and Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Norman Robinson of WDSU-TV and Lynne Jensen who gave a moving speech about her colleagues and her time serving as the Community Editor of The Times-Picayune.
FSC was also pleased to earn third place in the Best Use of Social Media by an Organization award for GoNOLA behind esteemed nominees Gambit and OffBeat.
