Woodbury, NY - January 26, 2016 - The Fair Media Council’s Folio Awards, slated for April 22, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Crest Hollow Country Club, honors the best in news. Reserve now to be among the 600 business leaders and media from major news outlets throughout the New York metro area. It’s a star-studded event with a purpose: To improve the quality of local news, so everyone wins.

“Long Islanders need to know what’s going on, whether it’s in their backyards, in Albany or in Washington, D.C.,” said Fair Media Council CEO Jaci Clement. “Quality news is vital to ensuring Long Island prospers. News identifies the problems so leaders can get to work to solve them. We also need news to celebrate our successes, so we maintain a strong community, and a strong identity.”

What makes FMC Folio Awards such an important program is the fact that the public judges the news. About 40 community leaders adjudicate the awards process. The winning stories have a common thread: The news tapped the pulse of the public.
