PHOTOS: RTDNA honors two for a lifetime of Excellence in Journalism
Chris Wallace, Fox News anchor, and Belva Davis, first female African-American anchor on the West Coast were both honored with awards and applause at the 2013 Excellence in Journalism Convention by the Radio Television Digital News Association.
Journalists are second responders to any crisis, but nonetheless, they are there to capture the moment, tell the story, and ultimately put their lives on the line all in the name of journalism. “We are the messengers,” Sid Garcia said. Garcia is a general assignment reporter for ABC7 Eyewitness News in California and has, like many journalists, covered stories that changed their lives.
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.
