Columbia Journalism School honored Nina Totenberg, NPR’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent with the Columbia Journalism Award, the school’s highest honor, during the 2015 graduation ceremony. The recipient is chosen by the school’s full-time faculty and is given annually to an outstanding journalist for a lifetime body of work that exemplifies excellence in the field.
Jane Mayer, a New Yorker staff writer since 1995, was selected by the faculty to be the Pringle Lecturer at the school’s 2015 Journalism Day ceremony. The award is named for Henry Pringle, who was a J-School professor in the 1930’s. The lecture honors a journalist with an outstanding body of work on Washington, D.C., politics and public policy. Mayer covers politics, culture, and national security for the magazine. http://www.journalism.columbia.edu/news/1476
