This year's RTNDA PAUL WHITE Award will be presented to CNN Chief International Correspondent CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR at RTNDA@NAB2007 in LAS VEGAS APRIL 16. AMANPOUR, who started in broadcasting as a graphics designer for WJAR-TV/PROVIDENCE and a reporter/anchor/producer for BROWN UNIVERSITY's commercial WBRU/PROVIDENCE, joined CNN in 1983.
"CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR is the first full-time foreign correspondent to receive this award," says PAUL WHITE Award Committee Chairman and former RTNDA Chairman DAN SHELLEY. "Given her career-long commitment to explaining world events regardless of the personal risk, and given her never-ending advocacy for quality world affairs reportage, she is most deserving."
