April 04, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Sun columnist Gregory Kane has garnered a prestigious National Headliner Award for a local interest column.

The Press Club of Atlantic City (N.J.) on Tuesday gave the first-place award to Mr. Kane. Sun photographer Karl Merton Ferron took third place in sports photography in the 62nd annual national journalism competition.

Mr. Kane, who joined The Sun as a reporter in August 1993, started writing his twice-weekly column that focuses on local issues in September.

In his inaugural column, he gave a preview of his provocative style in this self-description: "So now you know a little more about Gregory P. Kane: lifelong Baltimore resident, liberal on some issues, conservative on others, a veritable fascist on the topic of crime."

Before joining The Sun, Mr. Kane worked at Sinai Hospital for 16 years, first in data processing and for the last five years as supervisor of the transportation department. In 1984, he began contributing free-lance opinion pieces, primarily to The Evening Sun and occasionally to The Sun.

David Dudley of Baltimore Magazine earned a first-place award for magazine feature writing by an individual.

The awards will be presented at a dinner in Atlantic City on May 11.
