The Dallas Morning News Watchdog column by Dave Lieber won top prize in the nation’s largest column-writing contest.

The contest judge noted: “Through a lively combination of consumer advocacy and investigative reporting, Lieber’s columns were models of suspenseful storytelling and public service.”

You can read his winning columns:

– Helping the widow of Officer J.D. Tippit, the Dallas police officer killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, get buried beside her late husband, and

Helping a waitress who was harmed by an unscrupulous used car dealer.

The 2019 contest was sponsored by the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

Dave Lieber, a certified professional speaker, is the author of eight books.

His newest book is AMON! The Ultimate Texan. It’s the story of “Mr. Fort Worth” — Amon Carter who owned the newspaper, radio station AND TV station and ran the town for 50 years.

Dave’s play of the same name debuted at Artisan Center Theater in Hurst, Texas in May 2019. It was an immediate hit, with 16 sell-out performances. The play is now on hiatus as producers plan to bring the play to Fort Worth. Learn more at AmonPlay.com.
