INSI president honoured for work on journalist safety
14 February 2007
The North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) announced Tuesday it will honour CNN International Managing Director Chris Cramer with the association's prestigious "International Achievement Award."
In the citation, it said it wished to recognise Cramer for his outstanding leadership in the broadcasting industry, including his tireless commitment to the safety and welfare of journalists, his editorial achievements with BBC and CNN over the past 40 years and the development and use of Digital Newsgathering (DNG).
Cramer was a driving force behind the creation of the International News Safety Institute and became its founding Honorary President in 2003. He has carried the INSI banner on journalist safety ever since.
"We honor the work Mr. Cramer has done," the NABA said, "and hope that the legacy he has put in place will continue to inspire greater protection for our news personnel overseas and at home."
The NABA will present the award at its conference in Mexico on March 7.
