Buffalo State student Joana Leamon, a media production senior in the Communication Department, received the Tim Russert Media Career Award from the Buffalo Broadcasters Association during the BBA's Hall of Fame dinner on November 4. The $1,000 prize recognizes an undergraduate or graduate student who shows evidence of a promising future in radio, television, digital media, or social media.
The award is named in honor of Buffalo native Tim Russert, a lawyer and journalist who spent the last 16 years of his career as moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press.
Applicants were judged on their résumé, a 250-word statement demonstrating commitment to their career choice, a professional letter of recommendation, and a portfolio of work samples.
