  • "E&P revealed that Maucker was selected for his leadership role in growing the newspaper's readership and integrating marketing efforts -- while nurturing aggressive watchdog journalism that was recognized by winning three finalists spots in the 2006 Pulitzer Prizes.
The Sun-Sentinel achievements in readership growth -- propelling it early last year into Florida's most-read Sunday paper -- stands in contrast to other big dailies, especially some of its sibling papers who have been hit hard recently, while facing the uncertain future of Tribune Co.
  • “I think at the [Tribune] Tower, they’d get rid of the Chicago Tribune before they’d ever let go of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel,” one former Tribune executive confides, only half-jokingly.
E&P reports in its cover profile: "At a time when metro daily newspaper readership is stalled if not falling, the Sun-Sentinel is growing, and converting skimmers into heavier readers, by following a simple mantra that has become its most repeated advertising message: 'Local, helpful, useful.'"

SOUTH FLORIDA SUN- SENTINEL WITHDRAWS FROM BASEBALL AWARDS

Beginning today, Brian White writes, the Sun-Sentinel will no longer vote on baseball or college football awards. He says they'll report the news, not make it. The Sun-Sentinel joins a growing list of newspapers who no longer permit their writers to vote on these awards, including Cy Young, MVP, & Hall of Fame.

  • Among other things, the remuneration for winners made the paper reconsider its participation.
