Bob Schieffer Honored with 2013 Walter Cronkite Award

Bob Schieffer, a 44-year CBS News veteran and current moderator of “Face the Nation,” will be the 2013 recipient of the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism.

“Walter Cronkite is who I wanted to be when I was a young reporter,” Schieffer said. “He is who I still want to be so winning an award with Walter’s name on it means as much to me as any recognition I have ever received.”

With 56 years of reporting experience, Schieffer is the most experienced broadcast reporter in Washington. He’s been CBS’ chief Washington correspondent since 1982 and moderator of “Face the Nation” since 1991.

Schieffer will accept the 30th annual award, given by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU, at a luncheon in October in Phoenix.

Previous Cronkite Award recipients include Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer and Tom Brokaw.
