Chicago, IL - Windy City Times, Chicago's LGBT newsweekly, has received two nominations for the Chicago Headline Club's annual Peter Lisagor Awards.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond is nominated in the non-daily category for Best In-Depth Reporting in a Community Newspaper, for her article, "Transgender woman release from jail after nearly 4 years without trial," about the Eisha Love case.

Hammond and Windy City Times publisher Tracy Baim are also up for a jointly written editorial about the case, "Justice Delayed," in the non-daily Best Editorial Writing category.

In 2014, Baim was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Chicago Headline Club. She began her career at GayLife newspaper in 1984, a month after graduating from Drake University.

The winners of the 39th annual awards will be announced May 6. A wide range of Chicago-area online, print and broadcast media are finalists again this year.

The Chicago Headline Club is the largest Society of Professional Journalists chapter in the country.
