The McCormick Tribune Foundation has awarded the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation a major gift for its "Making News Seminar: Broadcast Journalism for the Non-News Executive."

The $50,000 gift will goes towards support of the seminar and also fellowships for women and people of color.

"Diversity in media is a core mission of our journalism program," said Richard A. Behrenhausen, president/CEO of the McCormick Tribune Foundation, which is celebrating 50 years of promoting communities, education journalism and citizenship in its program areas.

Additionally, the eight fellowships are geared toward radio execs attending the NAB Executive Development Program for Radio Broadcasters July 16-19 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

The Making News Seminar--established in 1998 with the McCormick Tribune Foundation--provides management training for radio and TV broadcasters who are leaders in their field in furthering the advancement of the industry.
