NASA Kennedy Announces Recipients of 2018 Chroniclers Awards
NASA will honor three veteran space chroniclers who have excelled at sharing U.S. space exploration news from the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Brass strips engraved with each awardee’s name will be added to “The Chroniclers” wall in the Kennedy Space Center Press Site during a ceremony at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 4, 2018.
The honorees, each of whom covered the U.S. space program from Kennedy for 10 years or more and are no longer working full-time in the field, were selected by a committee of working media, and current and former representatives of NASA Kennedy’s Office of Communication, March 21.
The award ceremony falls one day prior to the 57th anniversary of Alan Shepard’s historic flight as America’s first human in space. Coincidentally, it was Shepard from whom the first Chronicler honorees received their award certificates in 1995.
The recipients join a distinguished list of broadcasters, journalists, authors, contractor public relations representatives and NASA public affairs officers honored as Kennedy “Chroniclers,” including Walter Cronkite of CBS News, ABC News’ Jules Bergman and two-time Pulitzer winner, John Noble Wilford of the New York Times.
