The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma from Columbia Journalism School has awarded The New York Times and WNYC the 2012 Dart Awards. The Times won for its three-part series on Derek Boogaard, a former NHL player who died from brain injuries. The collective piece, titled “Punched Out: The Life and Death of a Hockey Enforcer,” was created by John Branch, Marcus Yam, Shayla Harris and Josh Williams.
WNYC received a Dart Award for “Living 9/11,” a documentary series which guides people through some of the many lives that were tremendously impacted by 9/11.
