NY1 has been honored by an association of city journalists for its coverage of Hurricane Sandy.

The New York Press Club gave the "Special Superstorm Sandy Award" for Spot News to NY1.

The judges found NY1's work the best in category in what they called "an impressive field of candidates."

Also honored was NY1's criminal justice reporter, Dean Meminger, and NY1's senior vice president, Steve Paulus.

They received an award for the best "Special Event Reporting" for their coverage of the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

And NY1's Ruschell Boone was honored in the "Best Feature Reporting" category for her series "National Pastimes", about some of the non-traditional sports being played by immigrant New Yorkers.
