Cameron wins memorial scholarship from group of newspaper editors

Gordon Cameron, group managing editor with Hamilton Community News, has been named the recipient of the 2017 Brian Mazza Scholarship from the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors

The prize is awarded to one Canadian weekly newspaper editor each year in memory of Brian Mazza, editor of the Rocky Mountain House Mountaineer, who died in 2007, at the age of 45. His cause of death was coronary artery disease, which was never diagnosed.

The award consists of a complementary registration to the organization’s annual conference, which this year will be held in the Washington D.C. area from June 28 to July 2.

As part of the scholarship, Cameron has been asked to give some remarks on the topic of how Canadian weekly newspapers are adapting to the post-Trump, post-Brexit news environment.
