Join us for the 55th SoCal Journalism Awards and LA Press Club’s Centennial Celebration Sunday, June 23rd 2013 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.
HOLLYWOOD, May 22, 2013: The Los Angeles Press Club proudly announces NBC4’s Fred Roggin will receive this year’s Joseph M. Quinn Award for Lifetime Achievement. The honor will be bestowed at the LAPC’s Centennial Awards Gala on Sunday, June 23rd at the Biltmore Hotel’s historic Crystal Ballroom, Downtown, Los Angeles.
Fred Roggin is the weekday sports anchor at NBC4 Southern California, joining the station in 1980. He is the host of ‘Going Roggin,’ a new 30 minute sports commentary program that airs Sundays at 12 midnight and the creator and host of ‘The Challenge,’ NBC4′s multi-platform half-hour post-game show, which airs following ’Sunday Night Football.’ Roggin has covered the Olympic Games since 1984.
The Los Angeles Press Club is thrilled to announce this year’s honoree for the President’s Award is a Hollywood legend. Carl Reiner is a director-actor- writer-producer-recording artist-comedian and tweeter who has—so far—garnered twelve Emmy Awards and one Grammy Award.
The President’s Award ”for impact on media” will be presented at the press club’s upcoming 100th year celebration on June 23rd at the Biltmore Hotel, Downtown Los Angeles. The award recognizes those whose energy and effort had an impact on media and our society.
This year’s winner of the Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism is Mexico’s Sandra Rodríguez Nieto. She has worked for El Diario de Juárez from 2003 to 2012 where she has courageously written about local government corruption and the failures in the judicial system. She has also written about immigration issues as well as the military deployment that turned Juarez into one of the most dangerous cities on earth. She has focused on how a lack of education and jobs drives thousands of young people into the brutal world of crime and drugs. Her reporting has revealed the organizational structure of competing drug cartels and their ability to evade law enforcement. She continually reports on the composition of warring gangs fighting for control of Juárez and how the alleged leaders have been out of reach of the authorities. She has also shed light on how various properties of these alleged drug kingpins remain uninvestigated. More.
Los Angeles Press Club kicks off its 2013 Centennial Celebrations by honoring former LAPC President Bill Rosendahl with a “Roast and Toast” on May 16, 2013 at the club’s headquarters in East Hollywood.
