Nine Post journalists are recognized for their work during 2020 in five categories ranging from newsletters to podcasting to investigative reporting.

“The Financial Post team did tremendous work in 2020,” Financial Post managing editor Joe Hood said. “We are excited to see it recognized by SABEW.”

Victor Ferreira won a gold in the personal finance category for his early look at the real people behind the boom in retail stock trading during the pandemic.

In the newsletter category, Yadullah Hussain and Pamela Heaven won a silver for their work on the Post’s signature morning missive, Posthaste, which sets the day’s agenda with the economic and market news.

In the podcast category, Down To Business host Gabriel Friedman also won silver for the episode “No science behind lobster dispute,” which explored the conflict over a Mi’kmaq fishery in Nova Scotia that had turned violent.

Jake Edmiston, Joe O’Connor, Kevin Carmichael and Terence Corcoran earned an honourable mention in the breaking news category for a package of stories and columns responding to Maple Leaf Foods’ chief executive Michael McCain’s public rebuke of the Trump administration, a rare outspoken moment for a Canadian chief executive.

James McLeod also earned an honourable mention in the investigative category for a look at the data collection policies of coffee giant Tim Hortons.

Finally, former Financial Post senior manager Michael Babad won the third annual Outstanding Achievement Award. Babad died of cancer in March 2020, just days after filing his last Business Briefing column at the Globe and Mail, where he had spent two decades as a senior business editor.
