Canadian Journalism Foundation will honour NNSL.com publisher Jack Sigvaldason at its 15th Annual Awards Gala in Toronto on June 7, 2012.

Valerie Pringle, one of the jurors, says “the fact that he created this feisty, profitable mini newspaper empire in the NWT and Nunavut serving 60,000 people in two languages (English and Inuktitut) over an area of 1.5 million square miles is a massive achievement and the centrepiece of a 50 year career.”

Past recipients include June Callwood, Peter C. Newman, Peter Gzowski and Pierre Berton (posthumous).

In this interview from 2004, Sig tells of starting – and growing – Northern News Services Ltd. Since this interview, NNSL has also acquired the Hay River Hub.
