Award honours Gzowski

The Association of Electronic Journalists has created an award named after Peter Gzowski, the late Maclean’s editor and long-time CBC radio host of Morningside. The RTNDA Peter Gzowski Award – Best Radio News Information Program was announced today. “Gzowski exemplifies the very best in Canadian Journalism,” said the association said in a press release. It said the Gzowski award will be given to the station “which displays overall excellence in content and presentation in a regularly scheduled news information program, which is not a daily newscast.”

The first Peter Gzowski Award will be handed out at the RTNDA National Awards Ceremony in Ottawa next June. The organization describes itself as “the voice of electronic journalists in Canada,” with the aim of fostering “the very best in Radio, Television, and New Media.”
