MTO Quota Story Snags Top Award

by 2006 November

TORONTO — We love Rolf’s scoops and opinions, and so do lots of other folks.

Newcom’s founding editor Rolf Lockwood continues to set the bar high for the industry and at Tuesday’s 60th Kenneth R. Wilson Awards (KRW) , he won for Best Editorial. The KRW awards annual ceremony honors the business-magazine industry’s best and brightest.

The award was for an editorial he wrote about the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s system for monitoring roadside inspections. The story was called “Quota Unquote” and appeared in the April 2013 issue of Today’s Trucking.

Also honored at the KRWs was Steve Bouchard, editor of Today’s Trucking’s French sister publication Transport Routier. Bouchard was also a finalist in Best Editorial and Best News Coverage.

Lockwood also is the author of The Lockwood Report, a U.S.-syndicated e-newsletter that reaches an international audience. The 33-year journalism veteran is also a Contributing Editor for Heavy Duty Trucking, a U.S. magazine, and has amassed a quarter-million-strong readership of truck drivers, operators, logistics personnel, and manufacturers. He is a regular contender in the KRW Awards.

Peter Carter, editor of Today’s Trucking, offered nothing but praise for Rolf’s well-earned award.

“Congratulations again Rolf, for proving Newcom’s founding editor is the best in the biz,” Carter said. “One of the other finalists in the same category was, ironically, Steve Bouchard, for Beaucoup de Questions. I wouldn’t want to be up against either of those two guys myself. Congratulations to both gentlemen and to everybody on staff who supports Newcom’s continued commitment to excellence.”

Lockwood has helped line Newcom’s trophy case over the years, piling up gold and silvers at the KRW Awards. He is also a big reason why Today’s Trucking is a perennial contender for the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors’ prestigious Business Magazine of the Year Award.

Today’s Trucking Publisher Joe Glionna adds: “We’re very proud of Rolf. Of course none of this would matter if it weren’t for the readers and advertisers, who make it all possible. Without them, it would be much harder to boast about publishing the best trucking magazine in North America.”
