John Ferrugia, a longtime investigative reporter at Denver ABC-affiliate KMGH, has been awarded the Missorui School of Journalism’s Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism for 2012.
“It’s humbling,” Ferrugia told the Denver Post. “When I got the letter, I had to check to make sure it was to me. I was stunned. This is not something that you apply for. It just came out of the blue.”
Ferrugia, one of 10 recipients, will be presented with the award in October. According to the Post, other winners this year include New York editor-in-chief Adam Moss, Washington Post investigative reporter Jeff Leen and the New York Times graphics department.
