NPR is clearing some room on its trophy shelf, as it won two awards for its online content.

The Online News Association recognized NPR for its Planet Money, awarding it the Online Journalism Award in the Online Topical Reporting/Blogging, Large Site category.

And NPR’s year-long Climate Connections series won a 2009 Communications Award from The National Academies in the “Online/Internet” category for excellence in reporting and communicating science, engineering, and medicine to the general public. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
