    Los Angeles Press Club will dedicate its 7th National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Award to the late Robin Williams.

    Being a true philanthropist, working tirelessly for the homeless, sick and our troops, the press club’s board of directors finds it appropriate to dedicate the awards to Williams.

    Robin Williams wife, Susan Schneider, said, “it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.” The Los Angeles Press club shares this sentiment and that is why the Board has determined to dedicate the awards to Robin Williams and “those countless moments of joy and laughter ” he gave us all.

    “Robin Williams also deserves being remembered for all the public service he did in daring us to talk about addiction and mental health,” said press club executive director Diana Ljungaeus.

    The NAEJ awards takes place at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, Downtown LA, on November 23rd.

    HOLLYWOOD June 11, 2014: The Los Angeles Press Club is pleased to announce the formation of an Advisory Board of prominent individuals from business, government and media. These distinguished leaders in their respective fields will lend their expertise and time to the Clubs continuous effort to support, promote and defend quality journalism in Southern California.

    The LA Press Club does an excellent job of connecting members with each other and sponsoring public events, so it made perfect sense to enhance our program with an Advisory Board of non-journalists, said Press Club president Robert Kovacik of NBC4. I am thrilled that so many respected men and women with such a wide range of expertise and experience have agreed to share their wisdom with us. We are fortunate to have these new partners to help us in pursuit of our mission and we deeply appreciate their willingness to participate.

    The Advisory Board will be formally introduced on June 29th at the 2014 Southern California Journalism Awards gala at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

A journalist for more than three decades, Shriver has used her journalistic voice to inspire and inform since 2009 to produce the groundbreaking and award-winning series ofShriver Reportschronicling and exploring the seismic shifts in American culture and society affecting women today. The most recent, A Womans Nation Pushes Back From the Brink, received over a billion media impressions after reporting for the first time that one in three women in America is living in poverty or teetering on its brink. The report received the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justices 2014 Justice Award. She also produced the 2014 HBOdocumentary, Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert,which follows one of those many womenliving on the brink, and was released to rave reviews.

    The Shriver Reports Special Reportsare book-length examinations of major transformational moments in American society affecting women and families, combining research and analysis from the nations top academic institutions and think tanks with news-making nationalpolls, captivating photography, and personal narratives from everyday Americans and government, corporate, faith, opinion, and media leaders.

    In 2009, the first Shriver Report,A Womans Nation Changes Everything, in partnership with the Center for American Progress,examined the national impact of women becoming fully half the U.S. workforce for the first time.

    This was followed by the second report in 2010,A Womans Nation Takes on Alzheimers,in partnership with the Alzheimers Association which reported for the first time that women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimers epidemic the Report used the lens of Alzheimers disease to also examine the national impact of womens role as unpaid caregivers in the United States.

    With a career in journalism spanning more than three decades, Maria Shriver has been a network news correspondent and anchor for CBS and NBC. She took a leave of absence from network news in 2004 when she became First Lady of California, but she continued to train her journalists eye on the transformative societal trends impacting women as breadwinners, parents, caregivers and consumers. On her Facebook page, Shriver describes herself this way: Im a journalist, producer, author & mother. My mission is to inform, inspire & ignite people to be Architects of Change in their own lives & communities. Maria Shriver truly practices what she preaches.
