Bob Meyers by Bob Meyers 0 comments

WASHINGTON: Chris Wallace, anchor of Fox News Sunday, has been selected to receive the 2011 Sol Taishoff Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism for distinguished accomplishments over many years.

David Newhouse, editor of the Harrisburg Patriot-News, will receive the Benjamin C. Bradlee Award as Editor of the Year for breaking and continuing to cover the Penn State University sex abuse scandal.

Gary Fields and John R. Emshwiller of the Wall Street Journal will receive the Feddie, given for work showing the impact of Washington rules and regulations outside the Beltway. In a series called, “Federal Offenses,” they showed how little-known laws can snare the unwary – such as the father and son who were arrested and fined for trying to find (but not finding) arrowheads on federal land.

The NPF awards are among the most prestigious in journalism. They will be presented at NPF’s 29th annual awards dinner, March 7, 2012.

Other major awards will be presented to:

The awards will be presented at the 29th annual NPF Awards Dinner, on March 7, 2012, at the Hilton Washington. An estimated 1,000 people from the policy, journalism and political communities attend the dinner. For information contact Kerry Buker at, 202-663-7282.
