The National Association of Hispanic Journalists will bestow the 2016 NAHJ
Presidential Dale Award to Lecturer Julian Rodriguez, news director of UTA News
en EspaÃ±ol and research chair of BEA news division.
â€œJulian has been an inspiration to hundreds of journalism students under his mentorship, but most importantly he has been an impassioned advocate for Spanish language journalism,â€ Mekahlo Medina, NAHJ president said. â€œJulian is making a tremendous impact on the next generation of Latino journalists, and Iâ€™m pleased to recognize his work, passion and dedication at this yearâ€™s conference.â€
The â€œdaleâ€ award is given to an individual or organization that has gone above and beyond to ensure fair and accurate representation of Latinos in the media.
NAHJ will present the award to Rodriguez at its national conference August 3-7, 2016, in Washington, DC.
