Siegel, vice president of NBC News Partnerships, will receive the First Amendment Service Award, presented to a person who works in an off-air management capacity.

Both awards will be presented at the RTDNF awards dinner, held on March 14 in Washington, DC. Belo Corporation chairman and president Robert Decherd will also be honored with a First Amendment Award for leadership.
