Ben Bradlee Jr. ’70 won the 2013 Cerulli Award for Excellence in Sports Writing/Biography for The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams. Bradlee spent 25 years as a writer and editor at the Boston Globe. The Cerulli Award was established in 2012 by Kurt Cerulli ’78 and his wife, Mary. * Independent Vermont newspaper Seven Days ran a Q&A on Vermont Loon Recovery Project Coordinator Eric Hanson ’70 in the fall. As Hanson’s responsibilities have increased over 15 years on the job, so has the state loon population, rebounding from a low of about 30 birds three decades ago to 283 in 2013. * Rebecca Littleton Corbett ’74 was promoted to assistant managing editor for the New York Times in December, which means she is now on the masthead at the top of the newspaper’s editorials page. She previously worked as a senior editor with a focus on enterprise journalism. According to Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, Corbett has edited some of the paper’s “hardest-hitting stories” and “most elegant narratives.” * In January Waterville Mayor Karen Heck ’74 testified before the Maine Legislature’s appropriations committee criticizing a proposal to reduce revenue sharing to cities and towns. Heck said Waterville and other communities take a hit each year because the state passes its responsibilities on to municipalities.
