Remembering Michael J. Feeney

We got the horrible news on Jan. 31, 2016, that Mike Feeney had died. Feeney, 32, was named NABJ's Emerging Journalist of the Year in 2010 and was preparing to start a new job at CNN. The outpouring over his death was swift, even becoming a trending topic on Facebook. Here are some excerpts.

  1. Benét Wilson - First-my deepest condolences to Mike's family. I met this extraordinary young man at the NABJ San Diego convention in 2010 the day before he was given the Emerging Journalist of the year. He remade NYABJ and you all remember when it won chapter of the year. He was totally psyched. I last saw him at the Minneapolis conference. We didn't ever get that planned drink together. I thank everyone who is posting about this extraordinary man that we have lost way too soon. ‪#‎TeamFeeney‬
