PBS Newshour’s Jim Lehrer has been named the winner of this year’s Fourth Estate Award for career achievement by the National Press Club.  Regarding their selection, Club President Mark Hamrick said, “Jim Lehrer has embodied the time-tested core values of journalism dating back to when many people had only black and white screens and continuing through today’s era of high definition television and social media. Amid the cacophony of a sometimes shrill media landscape, he has remained the true voice of reason, balance and fairness.”

Previous winners of the Fourth Estate Award include Walter Cronkite, Christiane Amanpour, David Brinkley and David Broder. Lehrer will be presented with his award at a gala dinner later this year.  Congratulations to Jim!
