RTNDF to honor Grant, Roberts, Google with First Amendment Awards

The Radio and Television News Directors Foundation (RTNDF) will honor Susan Grant, executive VP of CNN News Services, and Cokie Roberts, ABC News political commentator and NPR news analyst, as well as the world’s largest Internet search engine company at its First Amendment Awards Dinner March 12, 2009, in Washington, D.C.

Google 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. Google makes it possible for electronic journalists to gather information quickly and transmit their stories instantly.

Roberts will receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award, named for the late senior Washington correspondent for Broadcasting & Cable magazine. Roberts is an Edward R. Murrow winner and Emmy recipient.

Grant will be honored with the First Amendment Service Award, which is presented to someone of distinction who works in an off-air, management capacity. During Grant’s tenure, CNN developed new and stronger collaborations with its affiliate partners.
