PlanPhilly was mighty proud to learn that our contributor Christine Fisher will be honored later this month with an award from the Society of Professional Journalists for her series on the Philadelphia Housing Authority auctions last year.
Christine covered two auctions and neighborhood reaction as a reporter for PlanPhilly/Philadelphia Neighborhoods, the online publication of the Temple University’s Department of Journalism’s Multimedia Urban Reporting Lab. The award honors excellence in collegiate journalism. Way to go, Christine!
