Jay Ambrose of the Scripps Howard Washington Bureau is the 2004 Virginius Dabney Distinguished Professor of Journalism at Virginia Commonwealth University's school of mass communications. Dabney was a longtime editor of the Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial pages.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press scored first and second place for best editorial in the large newspaper division of the Georgia Press Association's 2003 competition. The Tennessee paper, whose editorial page editor is Harry Austin, competes in Georgia because, as a border town, it circulates in both states and comments frequently on Georgia topics.

The awards were for comment on the Hope scholarships and the Confederate flag issue. The Times Free Press also won best editorial honors in the University of Tennessee-Tennessee Press Association competition for 2003.

John H. Taylor Jr., editorial page editor of the News Journal in Wilmington, Delaware, won first place for editorial writing in the AP Chesapeake Region (Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia). Taylor's winning 2003 editorial criticized the Delaware Supreme Court for dragging its feet on allowing cameras in Delaware courtrooms.
