Auto Trader Scoops Motoring Journalist of the Year Award

Mike Stock, editor of Auto Trader, beat some tough competition to take the honour of Deliotte Motoring Journalist of the Year at the 2008 AA Motoring Excellence Awards held at a gala dinner on Friday 7 March.

The judging panel praised Stock's ability to cover a wide range of New Zealand motoring topics within a condensed format. The judges considered a host of work coming from journalists, looking at not only mainstream media but also the likes of blogs and broadcast media.

An elated Mike Stock acknowledged the quality of his fellow nominees adding, "To say I am happy to have won this award would be a major understatement. I am absolutely delighted. It's not just recognition of my work but of the importance of Auto Trader in the general motoring and motorsport news arenas".

Over it's 27 year history, Auto Trader has evolved into an industry leading publication providing readers with topics on all aspects of the motoring industry. Mike Stock has been a spearhead over the years in this evolution and has always remained faithful to what the motoring enthusiast wants to read.

Trader Group General Manager, Adrian Pickstock, said, 'this award recognizes Mike's ability to read the ever-evolving demands of our readers and to adapt the content and style of the magazine to suit. His expertise now stretches beyond the magazine and provides the editorial backbone for Autotrader.co.nz, the country's leading automotive website, where, no doubt, he'll scoop further industry recognition.'
