Richard Engel Honored with John Chancellor Award

engel-121812NBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel is the 2013 recipient of the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism.

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism recognizes Engel’s “courage under fire and reporting throughout his career that reflects a deep understanding of the Arab world.”

“From the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the Arab Spring and the West Bank, Richard Engel’s courage and integrity inform his reporting,” said Steve Coll, Dean of the Journalism School. “Engel’s work continues to be an example of the best of journalism. He embodies the spirit of the John Chancellor Award.”

Maria Hinojosa was presented the award last year, while Bloomberg’s David Evans was the 2011 recipient. The John Chancellor award is named for the longtime NBC News anchor and reporter who died in 1996. Engel will be presented with the $25,000 prize at a dinner at Columbia’s Low Library Nov. 13.

Bloomberg Reporter to Receive John Chancellor Award

The Chancellor Award, presented by the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University, goes to reporter “for his or her cumulative accomplishments.” Evans’s investigative reporting for Bloomberg has included stories on how secret profit schemes cheated the families of fallen U.S. soldiers, sickened or killed patients and cost taxpayers billions of dollars.

A nine-member committee selected Evans for the $25,000 prize. The award will be presented at a dinner at Columbia University on Wednesday.
