NPR’s Deborah Amos has been named the Radio honoree.

“Judy and Deborah embody the Murrow standards of ethics, responsibility, and journalistic courage,” says Lawrence Pintak, founding dean of the College.

The awards will be bestowed April 20 at the 36th annual Edward R. Murrow Symposium on campus. Legendary CBS newsman Murrow was a Washington State alumnus.

A new honor, for Media Entrepreneurship, will be given to ProPublica, the independent, non-profit, investigative journalism organization.
