NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO has removed the interim status from Acting Vice President for News ELLEN WEISS' title and officially makes her VP for News.

Yesterday, WEISS, with correspondent DANIEL ZWERDLING and editor ANNE HAWKE, won a PEABODY AWARD for a DECEMBER investigative report on the poor treatment received by returning IRAQ veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
