NEW YORK, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The National ENQUIRER is among the most honored magazines in the 2016 Magazine Media Awards, with six entries named as finalists, including the award for Overall Editorial Excellence.
The ENQUIRER, one of the most recognized publications in America, is also one of five finalists for Best Magazine Media Brand. Other nominations include two in the Editorial Series category and two in the Best Single Article category. The awards are presented by Media Industry Newsletter, which has been chronicling and analyzing magazine publishing for nearly 70 years.
"These nominations underscore that The National ENQUIRER is more relevant today as at any time in its 90-year history," said Editor in Chief Dylan Howard. "We are the only magazine in this category that is committed to the hard work, resources and guts it takes to break big national and international stories."
The ENQUIRER shook the nation last fall in revealing Charlie Sheen's reckless behavior while hiding a deadly HIV infection. Two years of investigative reporting produced a stunning exposé and forced the actor to confront his demons in a network prime time television special. This coverage was nominated in both Best Editorial Series and Best Single Article categories.
The magazine earned another nomination for another of its undercover and hard-hitting reports that exposed the horrific working conditions at Apple facilities in Asia in a feature that has been nominated as Best Single Article. The ENQUIRER's probe resulted in Apple executives visiting the facilities to observe and implement better conditions.
The final nomination, for Best Editorial Series, honors the magazine's ongoing coverage of the mysterious death of Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. As the young woman lingered for months in a coma, The ENQUIRER revealed details of the ongoing police investigation into the young woman's boyfriend and their rampant drug use.
The winners for the 2016 Magazine Media Awards will be announced on June 15 in New York City.
