The 2012 John Chancellor Award Ceremony celebrating the career of Maria Hinojosa.

Maria Hinojosa, a groundbreaking news anchor and reporter for PBS, NPR, and CNN, has covered America’s untold stories and highlighted critical issues at home and abroad for over 25 years. As the anchor and executive producer of her own long-running weekly NPR show, Latino USA, and anchor of the talk show Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One from WGBH/La Plaza, she has informed millions of Americans about the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States.

The John Chancellor Award is presented each year to a reporter with courage and integrity for cumulative professional accomplishments. The prize honors the legacy of pioneering television correspondent and longtime NBC News anchor John Chancellor. The winner is selected by a nine-member committee and presented with the $25,000 award at Columbia University. Past winners include David Evans from Bloomberg News, NPR's Robert Siegel and Jane Mayer of The New Yorker.
