Fifth Annual Awards for Excellence in Journalism
TheTimesCenter, W. 41st between 7th and 8th Avenues
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism will honor two men for their accomplishments in the fields of journalism and philanthropy at the fifth annual Awards for Excellence in Journalism gala on May 14.
Matthew Winkler, editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism while Leonard Tow, a pioneer in the cable television industry, will be the first recipient of the Distinguished Service to New York Award. The event will also honor three alumni from the recently graduated Class of 2011.
Dean Stephen B. Shepard praised Winkler for bringing “traditional journalism into the digital age,” and he called Tow “one of the great unsung philanthropists in New York history.”
