While Department of Writing journalism instructor Sean Holman didn’t win the J-Source Canadian Newsperson of the Year award for which he had recently been nominated, the jury did recognize Holman with a “special mention” for his “innovation in delivering and gathering the news” through his watchdog site, His nomination reads, in part: "Unattached to any major media, Sean has consistently held the B.C. provincial government's toes to the fire, breaking stories constantly that other media do not discover . . . the fact he has done this without the accoutrements of a media outlet speaks volumes for his abilities and his commitment to our profession." J-Source has been honouring excellence in journalism since 2008.
