Nominators Comments:
“Larry Gilbert Jr. has one of the most vital roles at Sun Media: He is the communication pivot between our newsroom and the community via social media. Larry is actively involved in the community, helping launch L/A Greendrinks, as well as several other social media-related meetup events in the Lewiston-Auburn Area. An avid runner, Larry is an advocate for a healthy lifestyle, and participates in all of our area benefit 5Ks and the Dempsey Challenge, and he is a strong advocate for the Twin Cities at every turn. He is a Lewiston born-and-raised media talent with a long track record of local employment in that industry, and he still operates a podcast in his free time.”
