(CNN) – CNN's online political coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign has been recognized as the best television-affiliated Web reporting of the year by the National Headliner Awards, one of nine wins for the network.
The Best Political Team's New Hampshire primary, Democratic National Convention and post-election coverage also drew nods from the judges.
CNNPolitics.com - with its news and analysis, interviews, live streaming video, original reports and user-generated content - drew a record number of readers last year, as the network coverage of the epic primary season and fall campaign consistently broke previous ratings records.
The Special Investigations Unit's reporting on the nation's mortgage crisis, health care woes and other massive challenges facing the nation were among other CNN winners.
The National Headliner Awards are one of the oldest annual journalistic prizes in the country, stretching back three-quarters of a century.
