Trophies —- MLive Stories Hit ESPN, Last Week – CNN, Last MonthJuly 23rd, 2012 by Joe Burgess
MonticelloLive.com’s Friday court photo and story about an NFL player’s Drew County DWI charge earned national attention. Phone calls came in from Detroit to Houston. Google shows the story was picked up and carried on sites from Oakland to Chicago to New York. The story was also covered by ESPN.
Recently, MLive coverage of a DWI 3, 4, & 5 case earned a “bottom crawl” from CNN’s Headline News Channel.
In January, CNN networks contacted MLive’s Joe Burgess about use of the “Bear & Deer” video. He quickly granted them permission.
Aside from the national attention the local website has drawn, Burgess considers the “Business of the Year” award, presented last December by the Monticello – Drew County Chamber of Commerce, the businesss’ highest honor.
“Monticello’s Daily News” is expected to reach 3 million pageviews in 2012.
