NBC’s Steve Capus Honored With Emmy Board Of Governors Award

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented NBC News president Steve Capus with the Board of Governors Award in Philadelphia last week. Capus began his journalism career in Philadelphia.

“We often hear how the business of news is on the decline,” Capus said in his acceptance speech. “Sure, these are challenging times for any news organization, but they are also times of great opportunity to move the needle on important issues.

We are just weeks from the 2012 presidential election, and as journalists, it is our job to make sure the electorate is informed about the issues, the policies, the perspectives and the candidates,” he added. “Every day, I press my producers on the need to drive at the heart these issues, and to hold these candidates accountable—not just to 8-second sound bites, but to thoughtful discussions about their plans to shape this country.”
