MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO "MIDDAY" host GARY EICHTEN has been awarded the FRANK PREMACK GRAVEN award from the UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA. The award is given for excellence in journalism; this year's award will be presented on APRIL 18th at a ceremony on the school's campus.
"GARY EICHTEN is a news reporting legend in MINNESOTA," said MPR NEWS Managing Director CHRIS WORTHINGTON. "He represents everything good and honorable in a newsman -- thorough, fair and appropriately skeptical on behalf of his audience. And at a time when our profession is faced with great cynicism, I can't think of anyone more reliable or more trusted to represent MPR NEWS every day."
