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.

PBS Details 2012 Election Programming, Non-Fiction Specials, And Another Ken Burns Documentary

PBS made a slew of announcements during its presentation at the 2012 Television Critics Association Summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Leading the way was its 2012 Presidential election coverage, which will be featured on “Need to Know,” “Frontline,” “PBS Newshour” and “Washington Week.” The network also announced a pair of election specials to compliment its regular programming. The specials are “America By The Numbers: Clarkston, Georgia With Maria Hinojosa,” which examines the changing demographics of America through the lens of a small town in the Peach State, and”Race 2012,” which uses the election to update viewers on America’s racial landscape.

PBS also announced a new documentary from Ken Burns focusing on “The Roosevelts,” Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor, and a new series “Constitution USA with Peter Sagal,” which has the NPR host traveling across the country on a Harley Davidson to learn about the Constitution.
