Bob Schieffer to Receive NAB Distinguished Service Award

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced today that Bob Schieffer, renowned broadcast television journalist for CBS, will receive the NAB Distinguished Service Award (DSA) during the 2013 NAB Show. Schieffer will accept the award at the opening keynote session, sponsored by Blackmagic Design, on April 8 in Las Vegas.

"For more than 50 years, Bob Schieffer has been an eyewitness to history's biggest stories and respected as a preeminent journalist of his generation," said NAB President and CEO GorDon Smith. "In recognition of his dedication and profound impact on journalism, we are proud to present him with the Distinguished Service Award."

Each year the NAB DSA recognizes members of the broadcast Community who have made significant and lasting contributions to broadcasting. Previous award recipients include Michael J. Fox, Mary Tyler Moore, President Ronald Reagan, Edward R. Murrow, Bob Hope, Walter Cronkite, Oprah Winfrey and Charles Osgood, among others.

2013 marks Schieffer's 56th year as a reporter and his 44th year at CBS News. He is one of the few broadcast or print journalists to have covered all four major beats in the nation's capital - the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department and Capitol Hill. Schieffer has also moderated three presidential debates.

Schieffer has served as the moderator of "Face the Nation," CBS News' Sunday public affairs broadcast, since 1991. He anchored the "CBS Evening News" from March 2005 to August 2006. He is also CBS News' chief Washington correspondent, a post he has held since 1982.

Schieffer has received virtually every award in broadcast journalism, and in 2005 his alma mater, Texas Christian University, created the Schieffer School of Journalism.
