Big honor for local TV newsie

Fox4 reporter Rebecca Aguilar has been named Broadcast Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

Aguilar, a 13-year veteran at the station, is praised by NAHJ executive director Ivan Roman as "the kind of journalist who contributes every day to fulfilling our mission of fair coverage of our community and journalism excellence."

The NAHJ's selection committee said that Aguilar "gives voices to people who usually don't have voices on the air. While touching many issues from different sides . . . you showed you were capable of separating yourself from the stories while maintaining integrity and credibility."

Aguilar will receive the award on Oct. 4 at NAHJ's 22nd annual Noche de Triunfos Journalism Awards Gala at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C.
