NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell will receive the 2013 Fourth Estate Award, the National Press Club’s prize for a journalist “who has made significant contributions to the field through a lifetime of excellence,” tonight in Washington, D.C.
Mitchell recently celebrated her 35th anniversary with NBC News. In a statement, she said receiving the award is “an incredible honor, made even more meaningful because this award began with the late Walter Cronkite and has subsequently been conferred upon my friend and colleague Tom Brokaw. I am humbled to have been selected to join such giants of our profession.”
