The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) is the world's largest professional organization exclusively serving the electronic news profession, consisting of more than 3,000 news directors, news associates, educators and students.
Soledad O'Brien received an award this year from the organization for her CNN documentary "Latino in America."
This month, Brian Williams paid tribute to his friend and colleague, Tim Russert, with the RTNDA’s Paul White Award at the dinner that included the presentation of the Edward R. Murrow Awards and the RTNDA/UNITY Awards.
Joining Williams as awards presenters were Lester Holt, Soledad O’Brien, Maggie Rodriguez, and Bob Woodruff.
RTDNA was founded as a grassroots organization in 1946, and is dedicated to setting standards for newsgathering and reporting.
