On June 7, 2012, Quinnipiac University held the 19th Annual Fred Friendly First Amendment Award Luncheon. This year's honoree was Martha Raddatz, Correspondent at ABC NEWS.
Past award recipients include Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Tim Russert, Morley Safer, Lesley Stahl, Jim Lehrer, Charles Gibson, and Gwen Ifill.
The award acknowledges one of the most basic constitutional rights and honors those who have shown courage and forthrightness in preserving that right. The award is named in honor of the late Friendly, a broadcast journalist whose work expressed his lifelong commitment to freedom of speech and strong democratic institutions. Friendly was a reporter, producer, former CBS News president and professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
