Thomas, Schieffer Honored with Murrow Award

Washington, D.C. veteran reporters Helen Thomas and Bob Schieffer have been named recipients of the 2009 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award.

Thomas remains on the beat at the White House covering her 10th presidential administration. Schieffer is moderator of CBS’s Face the Nation and the network’s chief Washington correspondent. The Murrow committee says Thomas and Schieffer are being recognized for representing “the best of the Murrow legacy: exceptional achievement in communication and a responsible, ethical, productive career.”

They will receive the award Tuesday, April 7, at the Washington State University Campus, where they will co-keynote this year’s Murrow Symposium.

The legendary CBS Newsman, Edward R. Murrow, graduated from Washington State in 1930. He moved to New York, joining CBS in 1935.
