Bruce Baer Award
Since 1978, the Baer Award — Oregon journalism’s top prize — which carries a $1,000 prize, has been given in recognition of Oregon’s finest investigative and public affairs journalism.
The award is in memory of Bruce Baer, who was dean of the Oregon Capitol press corps when he died of cancer at age 40. He had worked for daily newspapers and radio stations in the Pacific Northwest prior to spending 13 years at KATU (2) in Portland. The prize will be presented May 17 at the annual awards banquet hosted by the Greater Oregon Society of Professional Journalists.
