Generocity Lead Reporter Tony Abraham was honored for “Best Community Reporting of 2016” at the Pen & Pencil Club’s fourth annual awards event last night.

The press club’s Philadelphia News Awards celebrates the city’s best reporters and other news providers in categories such as “Best Multimedia Use,” “Best Broadcast Personality” and “Best Commentary.” Nominations are submitted by journalists’ peers and winners are selected by popular vote.

In a city full of talented journalists, it’s seriously impressive to be nominated in the first place. But Tony’s win stands out because he walks the walk harder than anyone else by actively fostering the community on which he reports.

Technical.ly Associate Editor Juliana Reyes also won an award last night — for “Best Business Journalist of 2016.” We at Technically Media are incredibly proud of both of them.
