Tampa Bay Times' Ivan Penn Honored for Business Writing

Ivan Penn, a business reporter at the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times, was awarded a Gerald Loeb Award for beat reporting Tuesday in New York.

Penn told Journal-isms that the award covered a combination of stories, but the primary one was an economic analysis comparing nuclear energy costs and natural gas. The awards are bestowed by the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Penn joined the Times in July 2006 after more than 12 years with the Baltimore Sun. He covers utilities, energy and consumer issues.

Black journalists are underrepresented on business desks. "Business reporting is undervalued in general," Penn messaged Journal-isms. "People care about the pocketbook issues. It's great that the Loebs recognize business reporting in such a spectacular way. The key in much of what we do in holding businesses and government accountable is the core journalistic principle of follow the money."

Eric Brown, Chicago Radio Sportscaster, Dies at 58

"Co-workers and colleagues are remembering Chicago radio sportscaster Eric Brown as a consummate professional and a genuinely nice guy," Chicago television writer Robert Feder reported Tuesday on his website.

"A 26-year veteran of CBS Radio all-news WBBM AM 780/WCFS FM 105.9, Brown died of cancer Tuesday at 58. He had been on a leave of absence since last fall.

"Eric was a reporting mainstay for the Bears successes in the 90's, for the Bulls six championships, and it gave him a lot of joy to report and talk about two Blackhawks Stanley Cup champions in 2010 and 2013, the station reported on its website. . . ."
