In the category for Sexiest Radio Voice, former XM-er Pamela Kirkland, now with Washington PostTV, took the win, besting WMAL’s Chris Plante with nearly 50% of the 2,500+ votes in the category. Also nominated: XM’s Julie Mason and NPR’s Ari Shapiro and Robert Siegel.
In the Cutest Couple category, NRSC’s Brad and CNN’s Lauren Dayspring maintained a lead over competition, winning against Ron, partner, Singer Bonjean Strategies, and Sara Bonjean, president, Rose Strategies, FOX News’ Ed and CNN’s Shirley Henry, and POLITICO power couple Alex Burns and MJ Lee.
Nominated for Best Writer, POLITICO’s Maggie Haberman and NYTimes Magazine’s Mark Leibovich held court against WaPo’s Nia-Malika Henderson, Yahoo’s Chris Moody, and NYTimes’ Neil Irwin. In the end, Haberman took the gold.
And in the category of Most Basic news outlet, POLITICO bested its competition, including Roll Call, The Hill, The Washington Times, PBS Newshour, and NPR.
