Bob Woodruff wins Pearl Award

On the back of winning a Peabody last week, Bob Woodruff has just been announced the winner of the Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism. Woodruff works for ABC and was seriously injured in a roadside bomb in Iraq in January, 2006,

“We couldn’t find a more deserving recipient of this award than Bob Woodruff,” said Chris Woodyard, a USA Today reporter, in a statement Wednesday on behalf of the Los Angeles Press Club. “Woodruff showed courage not only by going in harm’s way to report in Iraq, but then bravely facing a long and difficult recovery after being wounded.” link
