Nominations have been announced for the Hamilton Independent Media Awards (The Maggies). The 4th annual celebration of local independent media will take place on November 15th at the Hamilton Public Library.
The HIMA’s began as a tribute to the late Maggie Hughes, who was a prominent independent journalist, activist, and host of The Other Side on 93.3 CFMU.
Maggie was an indelible fixture in the Hamilton activist community, and a tireless advocate for peace, social justice, the environment, and the rights of workers, women, First Nations, and the disabled. She used her skills as a journalist to raise awareness of these important issues, and to shine a critical light onto stories overlooked by corporate media. – The HIMAs
