Former CBS Washington Bureau Chief Bill Small to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

cropped-cropped-cropped-Logo-Revert-011Nominees for the 35th annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards were announced today by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and former CBS Washington bureau chief William J. Small is set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Small served as CBS’s DC bureau chief from 1962-1974, later serving as president of NBC News.

Bill Small is an icon in the television news industry,” said Chuck Dages, chairman of the NATAS. “As Bureau Chief of the CBS Washington News office throughout the 60′s and 70′s, he was paramount in the dramatic evolution of network news that continues today. Recruiting the likes of Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer, Bill Moyers, Ed Bradley, Diane Sawyer and Lesley Stahl among many others, he changed not only who we watched each evening but how.”

PBS leads with 43 Emmy nominations, followed by CBS with 42, ABC with 19 and NBC with 13. The Military Channel and the Smithsonian each received one nomination.

Awards will be presented on Tuesday, September 30th, 2014, at Lincoln Center in New York City.
