by | Jan 15, 2023

The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), based in Washington, D.C., announced the honorees for its 2023 First Amendment Awards and included in that list is MSNBC president Rashida Jones, reports TVNewser.

Jones will receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award, which recognizes a radio or television journalist or news executive who has made a major contribution to protecting First Amendment freedoms.

“This year’s recipients feature some trailblazing pioneers, visionary leaders, brave reporters, and brilliant journalists. All are people who helped push journalism forward,” said RTDNA Foundation President Dan Shelley.

A total of nine honorees will be recognized at the 32 annual First Amendment Awards Dinner on March 2 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C.

According to TVNewser, other honorees receiving an award include Maria Hinojosa from Futuro Media, Jordan Wertlieb from Hearst Television, Keith Woods from NPR, Hilde Lysiak from Nogales High School, Connie Walker from Okanese First Nation from Sarah Koenig, Serial Productions, and a posthumous award being given to Jeff German from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Boyd Huppert from KARE-TV in Minneapolis will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Jones is the second person from the NBC News family to receive an award in consecutive years. Last year, NBCUniversal News Group chairman Cesar Conde also received the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award.
