RTNDF to honor four broadcast, journalism leaders

The Radio and Television News Directors Foundation (RTNDF) will honor four leaders in journalism and broadcasting at its First Amendment Awards Dinner, March 6, in Washington, D.C.

The foundation will honor:

  • Bob Schieffer, chief Washington correspondent for CBS News and moderator of “Face the Nation”
  • Tom Curley, president and CEO of the Associated Press
  • Paula Madison, executive VP for diversity at NBC Universal
  • Richard Wiley, founding partner at Wiley Rein LLP in Washington, D.C., and former chairman of the FCC

Schieffer will receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award, named for the late senior Washington correspondent for Broadcasting & Cable magazine. Curley will receive the First Amendment Leadership Award, presented to a business or government leader who has made a significant contribution to protecting freedom of the press. Madison will be honored with the First Amendment Service Award, which is presented to someone of distinction who works in an off-air, management capacity. Wiley will be recognized with a special First Amendment Award for his support of First Amendment rights for broadcasters and for his pivotal role in the development of HDTV in the United States.
