Dayton Daily News reporter Barrie Barber was named an award winner for his military coverage by the Military Reporters & Editors Association.
Barber’s reporting in 2017 on the Air Force’s growing pilot shortage crisis and its efforts to combat cyber attacks was recognized by the association, an organization for U.S. media professionals specializing in national security.
The winners of this year’s competition will be formally recognized at MRE’s annual conference, scheduled for Oct. 26 at the Navy League of the United States headquarters in Arlington, Va.
The judges of the MRE competition were faculty members at the Medill School of Journalism of Northwestern University and Howard University.
