TORONTO, Ont. – Transportation Media magazines – Truck News, Truck West and Motortruck Fkeet Executive – have been nominated for 5 Kenneth R Wilson Awards, the Pulitzer Prize of business magazine journalism. And Truck News executive editor James Menzies, a previous KRW award winners, leads all writers this year with four nominations for his work in all three of the magazines.
Features editor Julia Kuzeljevich, a previous KRW Award winner herself, has also been nominated for an award.
“This high number of nominations is further indication of the hard work and quality journalism provided by our editorial team,” said editorial director Lou Smyrlis.
Menzies’ nominations include two in the Best Feature category:
Refreshing the Fleet, which was published in Truck West; and The Trucking Industry’s Musculoskeleton in the Closet, published in Truck News.
The Refreshing the Fleet feature examines the great divide between those fleets who can afford the increasingly expensive new Class 8 tractors and those who cannot. The Musculoskeleton in the Closet feature examined the effects of MSD injuries on long-haul truck drivers and explored various ways progressive fleets are trying to reduce such injuries. Menzies was already given a gold award at this year’s Truck Writers of North America for the feature.
Menzies also has two entries in the Best Resource/Infrastructure Article category for his feature What’s super about Mack’s Econodyne Powertrain? The feature appeared in Motortruck Fleet Executive.
The other feature, What’s in it for you?, about insurance telematics, was published in Truck News.
Kuzeljevich also has a nomination in the Best Resource/Infrastructure Article category. Her feature, Indecent Exposure, examines the dangers of UV rays through cab windows for long-haul drivers.
The winners will be named June 4 at an Awards Gala.
