Bloomberg Reporter to Receive John Chancellor Award

Bloomberg Senior writer David Evans will be awarded the 2011 John Chancellor Award, named for the longtime NBC Newsman and predecessor to Tom Brokaw in the “NBC Nightly News” chair.

The Chancellor Award, presented by the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University, goes to reporter “for his or her cumulative accomplishments.” Evans’s investigative reporting for Bloomberg has included stories on how secret profit schemes cheated the families of fallen U.S. soldiers, sickened or killed patients and cost taxpayers billions of dollars.

A nine-member committee selected Evans for the $25,000 prize. The award will be presented at a dinner at Columbia University on Wednesday.
