Barbara Cochran Inducted into SPJ Hall of Fame

Cochran_6.12.jpgRTDNA President Emeritus Barbara Cochran will be inducted into the Washington, D.C., Pro chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists Hall of Fame during a ceremony Tuesday in Washington.

Cochran, wife of ABC Newsman John Cochran, will be honored along with Westwood One radio host Jim Bohannon, Washingtonian Magazine Editor-at-Large, Jack Limpert and former Newsweek magazine Washington Bureau Chief Mel Elfin at the D.C. Pro Chapter’s annual Dateline Awards dinner.

“I’m very honored to be included with this group in the SPJ Hall of Fame,” Cochran said. “It has been a privilege to represent so many electronic journalists in their battles for First Amendment rights.”

Cochran, former VP and Washington Bureau Chief for CBS News and Executive Producer of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” was the head of RTNDA — as it was known then — from 1997 to 2009.
