The Baltimore Sun has been named one of the top daily sports sections in the country for 2016 and its Ravens/NFL special section was also honored as one of the best nationally.
Competing in the largest publication category — newspapers with a circulation of more than 175,000 — The Sun finished in the Top 10 in daily and special sections in The Associated Press Sports Editors’ annual contest. The Sun also took honorable mention honors in Sunday sections and in the sports-digital contest for websites with more than 2 million unique monthly visitors. Judging ended Sunday in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The Chicago Tribune, Dallas Morning News, Minneapolis Star Tribune and Washington Post won Grand Slam honors for being Top 10 in all four categories.
It’s the third straight year The Sun has been recognized with a Top 10 in special sections and the second straight year for its daily section.
