Q101's Website Wins an EPpy

The fine people at Editor & Publisher have announced their awards for best sites by media organizations and winner of "Best Overall Local Radio-affiliated Internet Service" was Chicago's own Chicagoist couldn't agree more, as we admire's relatively clean yet visually interesting layout of their great content. One of our favorite parts of the site is Ryan Manno's "Telling It Like It Is"; for instance, he says that mainstream success for Modest Mouse would be deserved (versus being a bad "selling-out" kind of thing). Plus, Gothamist readers would be amused by Manno's thoughts on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs ("I’ve yet to see any actual articles written about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But I do know that I’m supposed to like them. I think. Or at least that’s what the editors of the magazines say. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are an artsy, New York pseudo-punk band who are so anti-fashionable that they’re fashionable."). Congratulation,!

The Editor and Publisher Awards are called the "EPpy's," not to be confused with the ESPYs or Epilady.
