The Christian Science Monitor's website, csmonitor.com, has won the Newspaper Association of America's Digital Edge Award (an Edgie) for the Best News Site. The association announced the Edgie winners Friday in Washington.
The Monitor won for the category of newspapers with circulations from 75,000 to 250,000. Other Best News site winners were SavannahNOW.com (fewer than 75,000), website for the Savannah Morning News, and washingtonpost.com (more than 250,000).
In the citation for the award, the judges wrote, "Built on the strength of The Christian Science Monitor's print content, the site thrives in a digital environment by adding online-only articles and crafting original products in conjunction with the traditional media newsroom."
This is csmonitor.com's second major award this year. In February, the site won an Editor and Publisher's Eppy Award for Best Online News Service (circulations less than 100,000).
