WASHINGTON, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --National Underwriter Life & Health and LifeHealthPro.com, both Summit Business Media properties, received Best Feature for their investigative multimedia story, The Complete ELNY Saga.
National Underwriter Life & Health received this award in the category of publication circulation under 100,000 in the 18th Annual American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) Best in Business competition.
Also a Neal award finalist, The Complete ELNY Saga, featured in the November 2012 issue of National Underwriter Life & Health and online at LifeHealthPro.com, is a special investigative project that examines the complete history of the Executive Life Insurance Company of New York's insolvency. Long remembered as one of the life industry's greatest fiascoes, the ELNY situation is nearing an unsatisfactory conclusion as thousands of payees are finding themselves suddenly cut short by an insolvency process allowed to ramble on for more than two decades. Those charged with safeguarding the public trust have wasted billions of dollars, conducted themselves in a questionable manner and betrayed the very fiduciary duty they were sworn to uphold.
The expanded coverage on LifeHealthPro.com included an interactive timeline of events, a series of infographics illustrating the impact of the saga, a calculator demonstrating the reduction in payments, Structured Settlement Profiles highlighting individuals' stories, and curated primary resources.
"National Underwriter Life & Health has truly committed to developing best-in-class content for our audience and for the general public, and recognition by SABEW for our efforts is a great way to see how those efforts are paying off," said Bill Coffin, Editor-in-Chief for National Underwriter Life & Health. "We are honored to be in such good company as the New York Times, Bloomberg Markets, Fortune and Inc."
Established in 1964, the SABEW was formed to promote superior coverage of business and economic events and issues. Since then, members of the SABEW have joined together in the common pursuit of the highest standards of economic journalism, through both individual and collective efforts. This year's competition brought in more than 1,000 entries.
Awards will be presented Friday, April 5, at the Marvin Conference Center at George Washington University.
