SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- WSTM-TV’s Matt Mulcahy was honored with the inaugural Bill Carey Journalist of the Year Award and more than 100 other awards were handed out to Central New York journalists at the Syracuse Press Club’s annual banquet Saturday night.

Bill’s widow, MaryEllen Snee, and two of their daughters, Jennifer and Joelle, were on hand to present the award to Mulcahy. Carey had been a reporter, anchor, executive producer and news director in local radio and television here for 44 years.  He passed away last August. The award is decided by an outside judge, based on samples of work submitted by the news organization and a written nomination. 

former Syracuse New Times publisher Art Zimmer was inducted onto the Syracuse Press Club’s Wall of Distinction. The Wall hangs in the theater lobby at the Onondaga County's John H. Mulroy Civic Center. Induction onto the wall is the highest honor bestowed by the club. About 70 journalists have been inducted. Zimmer purchased the Syracuse New Times in 1986.  During his 26 years as publisher, The New Times won more than 250 awards from local, state and national groups.
 
Nearly 180 people attended the annual event that honors winners in the club’s annual Professional Recognition Awards contest for print, radio, TV, online and college student journalists.
 
The Press Club also unveiled a new logo, it’s first new look in 30 years, in honor of the Club’s 65th anniversary.
 
Syracuse Media Group sports writers Donna Ditota and Mike Waters served as the night’s emcees.
 
At the awards banquet at Drumlin’s Country Club, special club awards were also given to several other journalists: 
 
Syracuse.com / The Post-Standard reporter Tim Knauss was awarded the Selwyn Kershaw Professional Standards Award.
 
Hayleigh Gowans, a reporter for Eagles Newspapers, was named winner of the A. Brohmann Roth Newcomer Award, given to journalists with less than three years of professional experience.
 
Trooper Jack Keller of the New York State Police received the Philip A. Hofmann President’s Award for Best News Source.
 
Amari Pollard of LeMoyne College received the DeVesty-Williams Scholarship.  The $2,000 scholarship is selected by a committee of journalism educators and professionals.  They evaluate applicants on their academic achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, media samples, professional references and a personal philosophy statement.
