Dec. 3, 2012: "Michele Clark Fellowship" - RTDNF's first fellowship is named for a CBS News correspondent who was killed in a plane crash while on assignment in 1972. Her family and colleagues at CBS sent money in lieu of flowers to create a fund in her name, endowing a permanent $1,000 award for young, promising minority professionals in television or radio news.

“I’m honored and humbled to receive the Michele Clark Fellowship. Clark helped pave the road for sharp and dedicated women in journalism; and as the recipient of this award, my goal is to advance that trajectory.  There is no story too small.  There is no issue too big... only a professional responsibility to seek the truth.”
