Former CA Cartoonist Wins National Award

Posted By on Tue, Apr 27, 2010 at 10:36 AM

Former Commercial Appeal cartoonist Bill Day, who was laid off from the paper last year, was named best cartoonist in the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism awards.

Day, who is now syndicated but unaffiliated with a newspaper, won for a series of cartoons on infant mortality. The series also received a special citation at the National Press Foundation dinner in February, and was lauded at the 2009 Berryman Awards as well. Day still lives in Memphis. And The Commercial Appeal is still without a local cartoonist.

Look for a story in this week's Flyer about the end-game negotiations between the Newspaper Guild and the CA.
