Gwen Ifill Wins PBS’ Annual ‘Be More’ Award

Gwen Ifill was presented with the eighth-annual “Be More” Award from PBS this week, a prize celebrating individuals in public television who “embody the spirit of helping Americans to discover more.”

Ifill is moderator and managing editor of “Washington Week” and senior correspondent for “NewsHour.” She received the award from PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger at the PBS annual meeting in Denver.

“Gwen is one of the best journalists in the country,” Kerger said in a statement. “She is among the most trusted people on television, someone to turn to for insightful, in-depth coverage of news and issues that matter. She represents journalism at its best: she’s skeptical about everything but cynical about nothing.”
