Jamie Kitman, Automobile Magazine's New York Bureau Chief, has been named the winner of the 2009 National Magazine Award in the Columns and Commentary category. Kitman's monthly column, Noise, Vibration, and Harshness, won the recognition from the National Society of Magazine Editors (ASME).
The awards, also known as the "Ellies," are considered some of the most prestigious for American online and print magazines. His winning category "recognizes excellence in short-form political, social, economic or humorous commentary. It honors the eloquence, force of argument and succinctness with which the writer presents his or her views." According to Automobile Magazine, Kitman's accolade marks the first time in the 44-year history of the award that a car-enthusiast magazine has won.
