Chairman’s Citation

NPF Award Winner: Chairman’s Citation - Charles Sennott and Steven Waldman

Charles Sennott and Steven Waldman 2019

Report for America

Waldman has been a journalist at Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and the Washington Monthly, created Belief.net, and was an advisor to the Federal Communications Commission. Sennott was a reporter and editor for the New York Daily News and a longtime foreign correspondent for the Boston Globe before co-founding GlobalPost and The GroundTruth Project, which supports emerging journalists covering under-served areas in the U.S. and around the world.

“At a time when good journalism is under siege, Report for America is providing a much-needed boost to bring quality journalism to areas where local reporting has collapsed,” said Kathy Gest, chairman of NPF. “This program strengthens democracy by providing the kind of factual, in-depth information that people need to make informed decisions.”
