Deadline looming for McGruder honor

McGruder. He was a former executive editor of the Detroit Free Press, former managing editor of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, graduate of Kent State University and relentless diversity champion. McGruder died of cancer in April 2002. The Robert G. McGruder Award for Diversity Leadership is sponsored by the Associated Press Media Editors and the American Society of News Editors.

Jurors will be looking for nominees who have made a significant contribution during a given year or a number of years toward furthering diversity in news content and in recruiting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce. The 2015 recipient will be announced at the joint APME-ASNE conference Sept. 11-14 in Philadelphia. This year’s honoree receives $2,500 and a leadership trophy.
