For the first time in RTDNA history, a father and son have been awarded the Paul White Award. Chris Wallace, anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” is set to receive the lifetime achievement award at EIJ13. In 1991, his late father, Mike Wallace, former co-host of CBS News “60 Minutes” received the same award.
Wallace began his reporting career in 1975 with WNBC-TV in New York City. While at NBC, he was the chief White House correspondent,  hosted “Meet the Press” from 1987-1988, covered the 1980, 1984 and 1988 presidential elections, and anchored “NBC Nightly News” from 1982-1984 and 1986-1987. He joined ABC News in 1989 and was the senior correspondent for “Primetime Thursday.” Wallace joined Fox News in 2003, where he currently anchors “Fox News Sunday.” He has won numerous awards, including three Emmy Awards, the Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton, the Peabody Award, and the Sol Taishoff Award for Broadcast Journalists.
The Paul White Award is the highest award given by RTDNA and recognizes lifetime contributions to electronic journalism.
