The Alibi Wins 7 First-Place New Mexico Press Women Awards

Competing against newspapers across the state, the Weekly Alibi swept the New Mexico Press Women Communications Contest with 9 awards. The Alibi's food writing, arts and entertainment coverage, news reporting, features, columns and editing were chosen as superlative in New Mexico.

Seven of the entries are first-place winners and will go on to the National Federation of Press Women Communications Contest, where they'll square off against every other Press Women chapter in the country. (The NFPW is a nationwide organization of professional women and men in the press and media fields.) We expect to do well there, as we've done every year that we've entered.

Suckers for Stucker

An interview with our favorite weatherman

Steve Stucker really needs no introduction. Since 1990, he’s brought jovial morning weather forecasts to New Mexicans via KOB-4. Formerly a professional dog trainer, Stucker is a friend to animals, even parading pooches on TV every Friday in order to help them get adopted. He also likes to dress up, sometimes appearing on air, according to his KOB bio, as “Elvis, Martha Stewart, Richard Simmons, Arnold Sportsnweather (Schwarzenegger), Mother Stucker, Patty O'Furniture or his alter ego Ed Noid.” Stucker is also a motivational speaker who’s highly involved with the community, and he’s been voted Alibi readers’ “Favorite TV Personality” multiple times in our Best of Burque poll. And he’s nice.

Participants will have 10 minutes to eat as much pie as they possibly can. The first place winner gets to take home a trophy and a 42" flat screen TV. The early entry fee is $15 and comes with a T-shirt and a license to go pizza-wild. I'll see you there at noon on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Pizza 9 (5305 Gibson SE). Call 366-6463 for more info.
