Washington Post Writer Finalist for Award for Series on Alaska Native Corporations

Washington Post staff writer Robert O’Harrow, who wrote a controversial series on Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs), was a finalist for a Gerald Loeb Award in the large-newspaper category.

O’Harrow’s series highlighted the $29 billion in federal government contracts that ANCs have received over the past decade. “As a result of his stories, the federal government ended some contracts, and Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) introduced legislation to eliminate preferences for the Alaska native corporations,” the Washington Post reported.

Administered by the Anderson School of Management at the University of California at Los Angeles, 13 Loeb award winners were announced by the G. and R. Loeb Foundation at the 2011 Gerald Loeb Awards Banquet on June 28 at Capitale in New York City.
