Carnegie Mellon CyLab's Prestigious Cybersecurity Reporting Awards Go To The New York Times, MSNBC.com, eWeek and NPR

Washington, D.C.—National Public Radio (NPR) won top honors in the broadcast category of Carnegie Mellon CyLab's 2004 Cybersecurity Journalism Awards program at the National Press Club Oct. 12 in Washington, D.C.

Specifically, Larry Abramson of NPR won for the broadcast spot news category. The judges determined there were no other finalists in that category.

In the print category, John Schwartz of The New York Times was the winner with Jonathan Krim of The Washington Post and Ted Bridis of the Associated Press receiving awards of merit.

MSNBC.com's Brock N. Meeks won for online cybersecurity reporting, and Brian Krebs of the Washingtonpost.com received the award of merit in that category.

In a new trade publication category added this year, eWeek took top honors with Scott Berinato of CSO Magazine receiving an award of merit.

The awards were developed by Carnegie Mellon CyLab, the Information Networking Institute, the educational arm of CyLab, and the Newseum to honor editors, reporters and producers who have done the most to educate the public by giving readers, viewers and listeners a better understanding of America's ongoing battle to protect cyberspace and preserve our national security.

The panel of judges, chaired by Susan Bennett, a veteran editor and reporter covering foreign affairs for more than 24 years and director of international exhibits at the Newseum, included Carla Robbins, foreign editor of The Wall Street Journal; Carol Giacomo, diplomatic correspondent of Reuters; Ralph Begleiter, a former CNN world affairs correspondent and journalist-in-residence at the University of Delaware; and Roberta Baskin, senior producer and correspondent with Bill Moyers and former producer for ABC's 20/20.
