SO PROUD! Independent.com just won the 2013 EPPY Award from Editor & Publisher for the best weekly newspaper website in North America, finding itself listed on a slate of winners alongside such media heavyweights as CNN, ESPN, The Today Show, and the Associated Press. That’s pretty amazing since the site is run by just a couple of guys: Mike Gahagan (left), who makes independent.com stay fresh and up-to-date, and Robert LeBlanc, who keeps everything functional and lookin’ good (and only dresses as Garth on Halloween). The gents get a good bit of help from the site’s leading light Matt Kettmann, news editor Tyler Hayden, and photographer Paul Wellman, as well as all the writers, editors, sales reps, and designers who call the data-streaming Indy home. We’re all so proud!
