Chronicle editor receives RNA Award for Religion Reporting Excellence

National journalism contest honors Bobby Ross Jr.'s coverage.

LAS VEGAS — Religion journalists from around the world, including Bobby Ross Jr. of The Christian Chronicle, were honored at the Religion News Association’s 70th annual awards banquet this past weekend.

Ross, who serves as the Chronicle’s editor-in-chief, received third place for reporting at magazines and non-daily newspapers.

Emma Green of The Atlantic won first place, while Tiffany Stanley of the Washington Post Magazine earned second place.

Ross was recognized for a portfolio of stories that included an Arkansas church’s response to a police shooting, the legacy of Marshall Keeble’s “boy preachers” and a disaster relief truck driver’s all-night journey from Tennessee to hurricane-battered Florida.

Ross previously won first place in the magazine reporting category in 2013.
