Congratulations to The Providence Journal’s Froma Harrop, who is a finalist for a 2011 Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism in the commentary category.
And what august company she’s in: Harrop’s fellow finalists are Paul Krugman of The New York Times, Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum and former Intel CEO Andy Grove. The winner will be announced June 28 in New York City.
Harrop, who lives in Providence and whose column is syndicated in nearly 200 papers, was also a Loeb finalist in 2004. She was a business writer for the Projo before becoming a columnist and joining its editorial board.
The Journal doesn’t appear to have a page for Harrop’s column, but her syndicate collects them here.
I’ll add that Froma and I met recently while appearing together on a Rhode Island PBS program about the future of news (it airs May 25) and she’s a lovely lady – we both love Instapaper, too. Good luck!
