Sunlight Live Wins Knight-Batten Award!


High fives all around!

I’m thrilled to announce that our real-time investigative reporting platform, Sunlight Live, has won the prestigious Knight-Batten Award for Innovation in Journalism. While the work of Sunlight is meant to benefit everyone, one of our core communities are journalists. It’s fantastic to be recognized from an accomplished set of judges. We couldn’t be more thankful to J-Lab and the Knight Foundation.*

For more information on Sunlight Live, read up on our previous episodes: GOP Job Forum with Lobbyists, Financial Reform and Health Care Reform.

Sunlight Live has only just begun its innovation of live news coverage and data jamming. We hope you’ll join us in our continued mission to make government transparent and accountable.

*The Sunlight Foundation received a grant from the Knight Foundation in 2009.
