WaPo’s Lizzie Johnson to receive President’s Award from the National Press Club

by | Aug 7, 2023

Lizzie Johnson, The Washington Post, will receive the President’s Award from the National Press Club for her story about an alleged $500 million Ponzi scheme targeting Mormons – done in partnership with the Las Vegas Review-Journal to honor the legacy of slain investigative reporter Jeff German. He also is being honored posthumously alongside Johnson.

National Press Club President Eileen O’Reilly summed up the meaning of Lizzie’s work in her announcement:

“The idea that Jeff’s journalism would endure beyond his death is profoundly moving and hopefully a kind of deterrent to bad actors who think that a journalist’s work can be silenced by their murder. Lizzie’s work and the spirit behind it is a strong and positive message for all in journalism. We just loved this project as a tribute to Jeff and the colleagues who supported him at the Review-Journal. We think what it says about the greater community of journalism is inspiring.”

Johnson’s story was published simultaneously by The Post and the Review-Journal.
