PBS NewsHour’s Ray Suárez is being inducted this evening into the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Hall of Fame. It’s a huge honor, but he’s got a big heart to accept it.
Having worked previously for National Public Radio, Suárez has been a Los Angeles correspondent for CNN, and a producer for ABC Radio Network in New York.
In 1996, Suárez was honored with the Rubén Salazar Award from the National Council of La Raza, and is the author of several books on topics ranging from the Latino experience to American politics.
Most impressive are his honorary doctorates from numerous academic institutions, including Marymount Manhattan College, St. John’s University, California State University – Monterey Bay, and Westminster College, to name just a few.
I look forward to meeting tonight’s distinguished inductees, and to sharing “Holdin’ Out’s” mission of spina bifida awareness with them.
I have to get ready now for my last night in Denver. It has truly been a blessing– and a blast!
