At last evening’s RTNDA Dinner, VP of CBS Radio Harvey Nagler was about to announce that correspondent Cami McCormick, who was seriously injured when an IED hit a vehicle she was traveling in with U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan last August, is nearly ready to return to work for CBS News.
In an emotional speech, Nagler called her “one of the most courageous and fearless individuals” he’d ever known and said, “I realize you’ve not heard very much about Cami since the first announcement of her injuries. Because that’s the way she wanted it.”
Prompting a standing ovation, Nagler added, “Right now I’m able to say something I was not sure I’d ever have the opportunity to say again: Cami, stand up and be recognized.”
