Actress and activist America Ferrera and Univision anchor and journalist María Elena Salinas each received honors at the NAB Television Luncheon in Las Vegas on Monday.
Ferrera received the NAB Television Chairman’s Award, while Salinas was inducted into the NAB Hall of Fame. Ferrera was honored for her “significant breakthrough in television,” which includes being the first Latina actress to win the Golden Globe, SAG and Primetime Emmy Award for lead actress for her starring role in Ugly Betty on ABC.
Since then, Ferrera has gone on to star in, produce and direct one episode of NBC’s Superstore, which has been renewed for a third season.
