The National Association of Black Journalists will recognize TV One's election news coverage with its "Best Practices" award during its national convention this August.
Comcast Cable and Radio One-owned TV One are being recognized for providing 16 hours of live coverage from the Democratic National Convention in Denver and six hours on election night to ensure its African-American targeted audience an up‐close view of Barack Obama's historic runs for the presidency.
"With minimal budget and without a news department, TV One rose to the challenge to provide in‐depth reporting from a black perspective on these historic events," said NABJ President Barbara Ciara in a statement. "TV One is going the extra mile when it counts the most."
TV One will be recognized by NABJ at the group's Annual Convention and Career Fair in Tampa, Fla. Aug. 5‐9, according to the organization.
