Martha Raddatz of ABC News will receive Qunnipiac Unversity’s 19th annual Fred Friendly First Amendment Award next month.
Raddatz has been ABC’s senior foreign affairs correspondent since 2008. In a statement, Lee Kamlet, dean of Quinnipiac University’s school of communications, said Raddatz’s reporting is “accurate and fair, the two elements that are indispensable to a journalist’s credibility.”
Past recipients of the award include Dan Rather, Lesley Stahl, Ted Koppel, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Christiane Amanpour. Raddatz will be presented with hers on June 7.
