HLN’s Joy Behar received the Excellence in Media Award, which was presented by NBC “Today” show co-anchor Meredith Vieira (Behar tweeted this photo of the two of them.) “I’d rather have that than the Oscar,” Behar told the Asbury Park Press. “It shows that people who struggle in this society with public image and being behind the eight ball with their rights, they recognize that someone like me who has the microphone can support them.”

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” won the Outstanding TV Journalism – Newsmagazine award for the “Uganda Be Kidding Me series. CNN’s “American Morning” won the Outstanding TV Journalism Segment award for its piece “Why Will Won’t Pledge Allegiance.”
