Our man Pat wins a 'Prodi'
IN August last year reporter Patrick Williams was scouring the internet looking for stories when he found a My- Space “kill club” targeting Tweed teenager Michael Murray.
The next day Patrick broke the story in the Tweed Daily News and a national media frenzy began.
Television crews and met- ropolitan papers swarmed on the Tweed, making it the hottest news story in the country.
Almost a year later Pat- rick's work has been recognised at the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance Northern NSW Awards, also known as the Prodis.
His initial story on the kill club was judged the Best Print News Report.
Tweed Daily News editor Brad Ricks said Patrick deserved recognition for such an incredible story.
“The internet is an ever-growing source of leads for journalists,” Ricks said.
“Patrick proved that with one of the best stories you would have found anywhere in the country last year.”
