PBS’s Judy Woodruff and NPR’s Deborah Amos To Receive Edward R. Murrow Award

PBS’s Judy Woodruff and NPR’s Deborah Amos will be presented with the Edward R. Murrow Award for Lifetime Achievement next week at the 36th annual Edward R. Murrow Symposium, to be held at Washington State University.

Woodruff, the former host of CNN’s Inside Politics (whom head honcho Ted Turner himself saw as the “one who got away“), is a frequent presence on PBS, NPR and Bloomberg Television, where she hosts the aptly-named program Conversations with Jane Woodruff. She will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award/Television.

Amos hosts America Abroad with co-host Ray Suarez. She can also be found on Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. Amos will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award/Radio.

Congratulations to both!
