This is the 14th year for the Mirror Awards, which were established by the Newhouse School to recognize the important work of the journalists who cover the media industry. Traditionally, awards have been presented at a luncheon event in New York City, at which the school also gives special awards for leadership and innovation. This year’s event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
