NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams is doing more than just picking up another award during his trip to Arizona this week. Today, he is receiving the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism at ASU, but yesterday he and his boss coached the next generation of journalists.
Williams and NBC News President Steve Capus took time during the day Tuesday to talk to students, answer their questions and even critique their work. Williams did an impromptu question-and-answer session with Cronkite NewsWatch students in their sixth-floor newsroom, and Capus “went from edit bay to edit bay looking at the students’ work and critiquing it for them,” Lodato said. “They were incredibly generous with their time and attention.”
Williams anchored Nightly News from the rooftop of ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication last night.
