Data Communications Magazine Wins Two Top 1998 Computer Press Awards

Jun 23, 1999, 01:00 ET from CMP Media, Inc.

    MANHASSET, N.Y., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Data Communications magazine has
 been honored with two 1998 Computer Press Awards.  The CPAs, the preeminent
 editorial awards of the computer and technology media, are bestowed annually
 by the Computer Press Association to recognize excellence in the coverage of
 computing issues in print, broadcast, and online media.
     "Empty Promises," an expose of the dirty tricks used by local phone
 companies to squelch competition, was named Best Print Feature Article.  It
 was published in the September 1998 issue of Data Communications and can be
 viewed online at http://www.data.com/issue/980907/clec.html.  "Corporate Class
 Internet?  Don't Count On It," which took Best Print Product Review, is the
 first performance test of the Internet backbones of the biggest ISPs in U.S.
 It appeared in November 1998 and is available online at
 http://www.data.com/issue/981107/isp. html.
     "This is an incredible achievement," said Lee Keough, editor-in-chief and
 associate publisher.  "To win just one CPA award is quite an honor.  To win
 two is amazing, especially when you realize that our direct competition was
 the San Jose Mercury News and Business Week."
     Keough continued, "The awards just keep coming.  The CPAs cap off an
 astonishing year for us."  She was referring to the fact that this year Data
 Communications also took home a Jesse H. Neal award for outstanding editorial
 achievement, the magazine's sixth Neal in five years, as well as a Maggie and
 an ASBPE award.
     The CPA awards were announced June 22 at a gala reception at the Yale Club
 in New York City.  The contest is conducted by the Computer Press Association
 in cooperation with the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at
 Northwestern University (Evanston, IL).
     "It was a tough, tough judging process because there were so many good
 entries," said Neil Chase, executive director of the Computer Press
 Association.  Awards were given out in 21 categories.
     "These CPA Awards, with our string of Neals and Maggies, demonstrate
 conclusively that Data Communications is the best networking publication,"
 said Publisher Joseph Braue.  "None of our trade competitors were even
 finalists, and beating out two business publications who pride themselves on
 their technology coverage reflects how Data Communications alone is the most
 powerful and authoritative voice in the networking industry."
