KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis Post-Dispatch was named the 2014 David R. Bradley Member of the Year, honoring the paper’s contributions to The Associated Press cooperative.

AP editors lauded the Post-Dispatch for its contributions to the Missouri wire and for its cooperation in a covering the violent aftermath of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

The award was created by David R. Bradley, Jr., president of News-Press & Gazette Co., to honor AP members for their consistent and frequent cooperation with AP, including efforts to provide news tips and photos for sharing with other member newspapers. The award is named for Bradley’s late father, David R. Bradley, Sr., who was a former AP board member.

The honor, which comes with a plaque and monetary award for the winning newsroom, was presented Sunday during the AP’s annual Missouri-Kansas editors and publishers meeting in Kansas City.
