It’s a bright and sunny day whenever the spirit of David Carr is actively remembered. Such was the case over lunch today at Cipriani 42nd Street, during the official presentation of the Newhouse School’s 2015 Mirror Awards.
Carr was honored with the I-3 Award for impact, innovation and influence. As we all know, those are three “i’s” that Carr knew how to vigorously and stylishly dot.
Also celebrated today as winners:
Benjamin Wallace / New York magazine / Best Profile

Yang Xiao / Nieman Reports / Best Commentary
Anna Griffin / Nieman Reports / Best Single Article (Digital Media)

Congrats to these winners and AMC Networks president-CEO Josh Sapan, who accepted the Fred Dressler Leadership Award. That more distant but hearty sound of clapping in the distance comes from, you-know-who.
