White House correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Networks, April Ryan will be honored as the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) 2017 Journalist of the Year.
The NABJ “recognizes a black journalist who has a distinguished body of work that has extraordinary depth, scope and significance to people of the African Diaspora.”
“April Ryan is a true trailblazer and truth seeker. She’s dogged and unapologetic about her pursuit of the story,” NABJ President Sarah Glover said in a press release. “In the White House press corps circle, where too few black women have been given an opportunity to report, April has excelled and persevered in spite of the many obstacles she has confronted. Her work has risen to the top.”
With over 30 years in journalism and a stellar career, all of us have been witness in the last few months to just how difficult her job has become lately. But God has promised not to put more on you than you can handle.
We congratulate April Ryan on her many accomplishments, this great honor and for more years of integral and great reporting.
