The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK JOURNALISTS has named NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO "ALL THINGS CONSIDERED" host MICHELE NORRIS as its Journalist of the Year. NORRIS will be honored at the group's "Salute to Excellence Gala" on AUGUST 8th in TAMPA.
"MICHELE had the best year hands down, one full of accomplishments," said NABJ President BARBARA CIARA. "Journalists should look to people like MICHELE NORRIS, who shows that through determination, intelligent analysis and careful investigation come journalism's highest level of respect."
"At a time when media is re-defining its place, one thing will always be certain: excellent reporting stands out," added CIARA. "A reporter and news analyst of the highest regard, MICHELE's reporting during the election delivered great thought and perspective on race during BARACK OBAMA's historic candidacy."
