    Lester Holt to Receive Walter Cronkite Journalism Award

    Arizona State University is awarding its 2019 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism to NBC anchor Lester Holt.

    The university's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication announced Tuesday that Holt will receive the award Nov. 4 in Phoenix.

    Holt has anchored NBC's flagship "Nightly News" broadcast since 2015, following eight years as anchor of the newscast's weekend edition and 12 years as co-anchor of "Weekend Today."

    Cronkite dean Christopher Callahan called Holt "a fantastic role model for our students and all journalists for his insightful, caring, fact-based journalism and stories that focus on the impact of major news events on everyday Americans."
