Stuttering Foundation's 2012 Journalism Awards

Randy Bachmann article The Winnipeg Free Press The Stuttering Foundation announced its 2012 Awards for Excellence in Journalism today to celebrate stuttering awareness.

From their website: “Journalists in a variety of settings have done an outstanding job of focusing on stuttering during the past year,” said Jane Fraser, president of the 65-year-old nonprofit foundation. “We are seeing a significant shift in how we reach people - not only through newspapers and columnists but also through websites and blogs. We are particularly excited about increased outreach in Canada and within the Spanish speaking community.”

One of the first place winners (it was a tie) in the "Daily Newspapers" category is Aldo Santin of Winnipeg Free Press for his August 6, 2011 article, “Randy Bachman’s You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet singled out by The Stuttering Foundation.” The article focuses on the stuttering connection in the story behind the Bachman-Turner Overdrive classic that hit the top of the charts over 25 years ago and opened up an extraordinary new audience to the Foundation.
