A Washington-based investigative reporter and a globe-trotting New York Times columnist head the 2013 winners of Missouri Honor Medals for Distinguished Service in Journalism, the AP reported.
The University of Missouri School of Journalism announced the eight honorees this week and will present the medals on campus in October.
Charles Lewis is an American University professor and former “60 Minutes” producer who founded the Center for Public Integrity in 1989. He’s joined by Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, an author and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner known for reporting from some of the world’s most impoverished regions.
The other winners are New York Times executive Michael Golden, a Missouri graduate; Washington Post photographer Carol Guzy; South Florida Sun-Sentinel sports editor Greg Lee; Associated Press correspondent Aye Aye Win; Hearst Television; and the global communications company FleishmanHillard.
