Cleveland Press Club honors ‘Foreclosure’s Fallout’

by Gregory Korte on June 19, 2008

The Cleveland Press Club awarded The Cincinnati Enquirer first place honors in public service in its annual Excellence in Journalism Awards last weekend.

The award was for Foreclosure’s Fallout, a story I wrote with colleague Alexander Coolidge. The series used an examination of 30,000 foreclosures and interviews with dozens of homeowners and neighbors to explain the toll of home repossessions in Cincinnati neighborhoods, examine the role of local lenders and investigate the way sheriff’s sales are conducted.

It’s quite an honor, considering the worthy competition from other newspapers in parts of the state even harder hit by the foreclosure crisis.
