Awards

In every public radio newsroom across the country, editors play a critical yet often underappreciated role in raising the quality of journalism produced on a daily basis. That’s why PRNDI took steps last year to recognize the importance of this position by inaugurating the PRNDI Editor of the Year Award.

The PRNDI Board of Directors is pleased to announce the 2018 recipient of the Leo C. Lee award.  This year’s honoree is Keith Woods, NPR’s Vice President for Newsroom Training and Diversity.  Woods’ work in leadership training, storytelling and diversity is known throughout the journalism world.    

Note: PRNDI has received several requests to extend the deadline for nominations. We will continue to accept nominations through Friday, March 23.

Editors. They’re the unsung heroes of the newsroom. They can spend hours working with a reporter, shaping and guiding a story, helping elevate the piece to something exceptional...and all without a byline!
