NYTs is Big EPpy Winner of the Night

image4101042g.jpg
The EPpy Awards, which honor the best web sites offered by newspapers,television, magazine and radio companies were announced last night. Perhaps not surprisingly, the New York Times walked away the big winner scooping up “Best Business Blog” for Dealbook (congrats to Andrew Ross Sorkin), as well as “Best News Web Site” and “Best Overall Newspaper-Affiliated Web Site.” Or, as we sometimes like to call it: all the news, everywhere, all the time, with links.

Other winners include USA Today for “Best Entertainment Blog” (Pop Candy) and “Best Sports Web Site.” CNN.com received the Knight News Innovation EPpy, for John King’s Magic Wall. Just kidding. Actually, they were awarded it for “finding new ways to gather and disseminate news and information,” in particular for iReport.com which they called the network’s first “uncensored, unfiltered, unedited, user-generated online community.” Certainly sounds impressive. The rest of the winners after the jump.
