Slugger Awards: Best investigative journalism…

This time next year we hope Trevor Birney’s The Detail website will be up and running, but for now most of the nominations we have so far are well deserved players in the more conventional mainstream media.

Remember we’re building up a long list which will be shortlisted at the The Big Political Breakfast next week, so keep the suggestions coming along with your reasons. In this category we have just three (remember there is a separate political journalist of the year) so far:

– Jamie Delargy for his sterling and indefatigable work on NIW Water when other journalists baulked the sheer weight of detail involved in bringing home an important public interest story.

– Suzanne Breen, for a number of reasons, but primarily for her determination to go looking for a story in areas shunned by the rest of the press.

– David Gordon – because he is not scared to dig the dirt on some of the most powerful people in Northern Ireland.

In the meantime, just keep dumping your own nominations  for other categories into the general thread here.
