Pierre Thomas Named NABJ Journalist of the Year

ABC’s Pierre Thomas has been named NABJ journalist of the year.

“Pierre Thomas’ entire career has been a testament to his abilities as an incisive reporter whose storytelling is noteworthy,” said NABJ President Gregory Lee Jr. “We honor him now because during the past year his abilities have allowed him to be frontline, reporting on the stories that captivated us all.”

The NABJ singled out Thomas and his team for ABC’s coverage of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and for being “the very first person in the news division” to tell his colleagues why Pres. Obama had hastily called a Sunday night national address last May: it was to announce the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

Thomas has been with ABC since 2000. Before that he was CNN’s Justice Department correspondent and held several reporting positions at The Washington Post.
