NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO's SUSAN STAMBERG will receive the 2007 GRACIE ALLEN TRIBUTE AWARD at the AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO AND TELEVISION's GRACIE AWARDS gala JUNE 18. STAMBERG will be presented with the award by NPR Senior Correspondent LINDA WERTHEIMER.
"SUSAN STAMBERG is one of the shining lights in electronic media," says AWRT 2007 National Chair and RAB EVP MARY BENNETT. "Throughout her career in radio she has entertained and educated audiences with her congenial style as well as her instinct for addressing the most topical and pertinent issues. We are proud to pay her tribute."
"I’ve always felt that women make a difference in the newsroom," said STAMBERG. "AWRT has known that for years. It’s a special treat, then, to be recognized by an organization that advances and salutes the work of women in media. May our tribe increase!"
