‘CBS Evening News’ Among Polk Winners

By | Tuesday February 19, 2013 @ 2:38pm PST

The 2012 George Polk Award for Television News Reporting was bestowed today on CBS Evening News With Scott Pelley for its coverage of Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng. CBS News correspondent Holly Williams, who is fluent in Mandarin, reported in May on Chen’s escape to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing following years of being under house arrest after exposing forced abortions in China. Pelley was credited on the story as anchor and managing editor, Patricia Shevlin was executive producer, Heather Abbott was senior producer, and Marsha Cooke was producer. Winners of the 64th annual Polk awards, unveiled today in 14 categories by Long Island University to honor special achievement in journalism, include PBS’ Frontline correspondent Martin Smith and producer Michael Kirk, whose four-part series “Money, Power And Wall Street” won for Documentary Television Reporting. Also a winner was Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief and MSNBC analyst David Corn, who secured and unveiled the now-infamous Mitt Romney “47 percent” video that dented the GOP presidential candidate’s chances last year.
