Mike Lowe, a staff writer with the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, has been named Maine Sportswriter of the Year for 2015 by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
It marks the second consecutive year a Press Herald reporter has won the honor. Last year, Mark Emmert was named Maine Sportswriter of the Year. He and Lowe were the two finalists for the award in 2015.
Lowe, who has worked for the Press Herald since 1982, was selected for the honor through a nomination and balloting process among NSSA members. He covers the New England Patriots, along with high school and college sports.
