“Rachel’s passionate coverage of the intersection of religion and politics exhibits a strong personal intellect coupled with constitutional sensitivity to the proper boundaries between religion and government,” Interfaith Alliance president Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy says in a press release.

Previous Cronkite honorees include Tom Brokaw, Larry King, and the late Peter Jennings. Maddow will receive her award at an October 24 dinner in Manhattan.
