HERALD SUN state political editor James Campbell has won Victoria’s top journalism award, the Gold Quill, for his secret tapes report in relation to key Liberal Party advisers.
Campbell’s investigation triggered the resignation of then premier Ted Baillieu.
Campbell, who taught political science at Monash University, also won the Grant Hattam Quill for Investigative Journalism.
Melbourne Press Club judges stated: “The impact of Campbell’s work was strengthened by the publication of excerpts from the tapes on the Herald Sun website, an impressive marriage of print and digital media.”
In his acceptance speech at Crown Palladium on Friday, March 21, Campbell thanked Herald Sun editor, Damon Johnson, editorial director Peter Blunden, national political editor Ellen Whinnett, his state rounds colleagues and his wife.
Monash University alumna, Ashley Argoon, was highly commended in the Melbourne Press Club’s Young Journalist of the Year. Ashlynne McGhee, an ABC reporter, won the coveted award.
Argoon, the Herald Sun’s gaming reporter, won the 2013 Young Walkley Journalist of the Year.
She is renowned for exclusively interviewing Tania Hird, which led to further vigorous reporting on the Essendon supplements investigation.
