Moriarty Receives Lifetime Achievement Award


Erin Moriarty, 48 Hours correspondent, will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s 44th Annual Gracie Awards Luncheon. Sheinelle Jones, co-anchor of Weekend TODAY and co-host of the 3rd Hour of TODAY will host the luncheon. The annual luncheon, set for June 26 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, honors women for individual achievement and outstanding programming at the local level for television and radio, public radio and students in television, radio and interactive media.

“The Gracie Awards celebrate the bravery of storytellers to share relevant, compelling content while pushing boundaries to create an environment of equality,” said AWM/F Chair Christine Travaglini, President, Katz Radio Group.

AWM/F Executive Director Becky Brooks added, “Throughout her 40-year journalism career, Erin Moriarty’s well-researched, diligent approach to covering stories about crime and justice, about consumer issues, and much more has been consistent and illustrates why she is so worthy of this Lifetime Achievement Award.”

“This is an incredible honor to receive this Gracie from the Alliance for Women in Media,” said Moriarty. “It is truly humbling to be recognized with this award and to join the list of notable women who have come before me. It is because of this organization that I, and so many others, have flourished in our profession.”

Performing at the luncheon will be singer-songwriter Brynn Elliott.
