No state can thrive without fearless commentators who are willing to speak truth to power, and who opine on the facts with clarity and conviction. For that reason, Yankee is proud to bestow the
Truth Teller Award – For a journalist who consistently comments on Connecticut policy and politics with candor, integrity and fearless dedication
to Chris Powell, managing editor and columnist at "North-Central Connecticut's hometown newspaper," the Journal-Inquirer.
Join us to see Chris Powell accept his award at Yankee's 30th anniversary celebration on Thursday, October 9!
