Wolf Blitzer Honored With National Press Foundation Award

Wolf Blitzer was awarded with the Sol Taishoff Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism earlier this week from the National Press Foundation.

“He’s kind of like Cher…people just call him Wolf,” CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker said in a special montage made by CNN for Blitzer. “Listen balloon boy, I’ll tell you who the hell Wolf is,” Anderson Cooper said after a clip from balloon boy a few years ago asked “who the hell’s Wolf?”

“Wolf’s a top notch journalist, a treasured colleague, cool under pressure, and up for anything…congratulations Wolf,” Cooper added.
