By Merrill Knox Comment

Martha Raddatz of ABC News will receive Qunnipiac Unversity’s 19th annual Fred Friendly First Amendment Award next month.

Raddatz has been ABC’s senior foreign affairs correspondent since 2008. In a statement, Lee Kamlet, dean of Quinnipiac University’s school of communications, said Raddatz’s reporting is “accurate and fair, the two elements that are indispensable to a journalist’s credibility.”

Past recipients of the award include Dan Rather, Lesley Stahl, Ted Koppel, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Christiane Amanpour. Raddatz will be presented with hers on June 7.
