New York Festivals recognises The Kalb Report

New York Festivals Television & Film Awards/Radio Awards will honour The Kalb Report with the 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Storytellers Gala on April 18th.

The New York Festivals Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes prominent industry leaders and innovators whose accomplishments have advanced their field and made a lasting impression on the industry.

The Kalb Report is a public broadcasting series hosted by eminent journalist Marvin Kalb that is the longest-running project in National Press Club history, with 103 programs over 28 years. 

From the beginning, Kalb said the purpose of the series was to bring top journalists and newsmakers to the National Press Club in Washington, DC, for an hour-long discussion of the state of journalism and politics that would attract students as well as Club members.

By the end of the first program, Kalb said he could see that the defining theme for the series was the news media’s impact on American democracy.

Guests over the years have included U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg (together); Walter Cronkite;  Ken Burns; Civil Rights icons John LewisJulian Bond and Andrew Young (together); Apollo 11 astronaut Michael CollinsHillary ClintonRupert MurdochJudy WoodruffCokie Roberts; Bob Costas; and Nobel Prize recipient Elie Wiesel.

Trophy-winning entries will be celebrated at the NYF Storytellers Gala taking place on April 18th at the Centennial NAB Show in Las Vegas. 

This is the 13th year of New York Festivals’ strategic partnership with NAB.
