EPpy nominations were kind to the Tribune this year; they include Maureen Ryan'sThe Watcher, ChicagoSports.com and the paper's multimedia special on "the Mercury Menace." The Crain's site was also nominated. The EPpy Awards annually honor new media forays by old media and will be handed out next month in Vegas.
