Rhode Island Monthly readers have voted, and What’sUpNewp is among their favorites.

What’sUpNewp was among those honored on Thursday night at Rhode Island Monthly’s 25th Annual Best Of Rhode Island Party at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence. In front of a sold-out crowd, What’sUpNewp was recognized for the best “Local news blog” in the state.

Ken Abrams, Sarah McClutchy, and I (pictured above) were on hand to accept the award on behalf of the entire crew at What’sUpNewp.

This is the first year that What’sUpNewp has been named a Best of Rhode Island winner.

Earlier this year Rhode Island Monthly surveyed their readers and asked them to name their favorites in a variety of categories, from best restaurant statewide to best free attraction.

Thanks to the many Rhode Islanders who contributed their opinions and voted for What’sUpNewp, we thank you and appreciate your support.
