WTOP’s VP of News and Programming, Jim Farley, is this year’s recipient of the Freedom of Speech Award. Farley will be presented with the award at a new media seminar in New York City on June 7, 2012.
TALKERS Magazine, a trade publication, is honoring Farley with the award.
“I am thrilled on behalf of the men and women in the WTOP Newsroom whose hard work is protected by the First Amendment,” said Farley in a release. “They do all the heavy lifting and I get credit for THEIR hard work.”
The Freedom of Speech Award is a non-partisan honor given to those talk media figures whose work demonstrates the First Amendment in action and raises awareness of its principles.
