Ted Koppel to Receive the 2011 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award

Ted Koppel is set to receive the 2011 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement award at Washington State University. The annual Murrow Symposium — historically held in April — is set for Sept. 23, which is part of the program’s restructuring.

Koppel told WSU Today:

“I never met Ed Murrow, but my life has been bracketed by his influence. First as a boy in London, listening with my father as the BBC rebroadcast some of his war time reports for CBS. Those gave me my first appetite for journalism. And now the great honor of receiving this award that bears his name, which still sets the standard for what broadcast journalism can and should be.”
Koppel is no stranger to accolades — having won 41 Emmy Awards, eight George Foster Peabody Awards, 10 duPont-Columbia Awards, 10 Overseas Press Club Awards, two George Polk Awards and two Sigma Delta Chi Awards.
