Maria Hinojosa Presented 2012 John Chancellor Award

Maria Hinojosa, a reporter and anchor for NPR, PBS and CNN is the recipient of the 2012 John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism. Presented by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, the award is named for the former anchor of “NBC Nightly News.”

The University says Mexico-born and Chicago-raised Hinojosa was selected “in recognition of the courage and independence she has shown over the course of her career reporting on those whose stories might not otherwise make it into the mainstream media.”

An eight-member committee, including NBC News president Steve Capus and Chancellor’s daughter, Mary, selected Hinojosa for the award, which bestows a $25,000 prize for the winner.
