UCG sweeps a record nine awards in newsletter journalism competition. (Editing).

Introducing some of the 36 winners in the Newsletter & Electronic Publishers Foundation "excellence in newsletter journalism" competition, Helen Hoart of The Consumer Health Publishing Group referred to UCG as having a "blue-ribbon editorial stable."

The company won a record four First Place awards and nine overall at the awards presentation during the recent NEPA conference in Washington, D.C.

Two of UCG's First Place winners scooped all other media in uncovering what were to become major news stories of 2002:

* Funeral Service Insider, whose editor, Vanessa Phillips, broke the Tri-State Crematory case, in which a Georgia crematory was discovered to be improperly disposing of bodies it was supposed to be cremating.

* The Telecom Manager's Voice Report, whose May 20, 2002 story, "WorldCom Holds at Least $1.8 Billion in Billing Credits," was the culmination of several months of investigative work by publisher Jonathan Stern with contributions by reporter Peg Brickley into the financial shenanigans of WorldCom. The story turned out to be one of the biggest global business stories of 2002. The U.S. Congress cited in the Congressional Record the newsletter's work in uncovering the scandal, and The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times relied on the newsletter in follow-up coverage.

First Place winners receive $500 cash in memory of the late David Swit, legendary newsletter journalist and NEPF benefactor.
