The awards will be handed out at the foundation’s 10th annual awards dinner Feb. 25, 1993.
Bradley, of CBS News’ ″60 Minutes″ and ″Street Stories,″ will receive the $5,000 Sol Taishoff Award to honor his lifetime achievement in broadcast journalism, the foundation said. Taishoff, now deceased, founded Broadcasting Magazine.
Broder of The Washington Post will receive the National Press Foundation’s own recognition award for distinguished contributions to journalism. The award honors him for setting standards for political and campaign reporting. It includes no money.
Brown, who left the helm of Vanity Fair after eight years in September to take over The New Yorker, will be named the nation’s editor of the year, the foundation said. Credited with revitalizing both magazines although she has been at The New Yorker only a few months, Brown will receive the $5,000 award named for the late George David Beveridge, Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning editor of The Washington Star.
Schorr of The Kansas City Star was named editorial cartoonist of the year. He was selected by a committee of foundation directors from a field of 58 competitors. He will receive a $1,000 award named for the late Clifford K. and James T. Berryman, father and son cartoonists for The Washington Star who both won the Pulitzer Prize.
The only award that had second and third place finishers was the cartoon honor in which Bob Jorgensen of Extra Newspaper Features came in second, followed by Tony Auth of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The foundation is an independent, non-profit organization that gives awards, grants, fellowships, seminars and public forums. It also supports a research library for journalists and journalism training.
