The Association of Alternative Newsmedia has announced the finalists for the 2013 AAN Awards, and Flagpole has been named a finalist in the "Column: Circulation Under 50,000" category.
Publisher and editor Pete McCommons earned the well-deserved nod for his weekly Pub Notes column, which he has used to advocate for the preservation of a famous local landmark, run a fictional congressional campaign and chronicle his foray into local theatre, among other recent topics.
Congratulations, Pete! No word yet on whether he's planning to fly the entire Flagpole staff down to Miami for the July 13 reception, but we're pretty sure it's gonna happen. South Beach, here we come!
