KYW Newsradio Community Affairs Reporter, Cherri Gregg, has been named Journalist of the Year by the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ).
An awards ceremony is being held on Saturday, October 26th from 6 PM to 10 PM at WHYY TV in Philadelphia, as part of the organization’s 40th anniversary
celebration.

“Cherri’s unique skills and tremendous poise from her previous career in the legal community transferred immediately to our benefit at KYW,” said Steve
Butler, VP/News Programming for CBS Radio. “Her networking ability has tied KYW closer to the community it serves, and has led to great storytelling for
the radio.”

PABJ has selected six outstanding individuals whose stellar work reflects exemplary journalism and embodies public service to African Americans and the
local community throughout the Philadelphia region. Others honorees include Monique Braxton, Bob Perkins, Eric Hughes, Elleanor Jean Hendley, and Pamela
Thomas.

“It’s truly an honor to receive an award from my peers, especially for my coverage of Pennsylvania’s voter ID law and for KYW’s Philadelphia Gamechangers
series,” said Gregg. “I felt passionate about both projects, in part, because of the impact it would have on the community. I am so appreciative of PABJ
for the recognition, as well as to KYW for giving me the freedom to pursue stories that I care about.”

As Community Affairs Reporter, Gregg sheds light on numerous issues, legal affairs, social justice, neighborhoods and area leaders affecting community life
in the Delaware Valley. Gregg is also a licensed attorney.

PABJ will also award scholarships to deserving college and college bound students pursuing journalism careers, and honor its founders and early members.
Former CBS 3 Reporter Dray Clark and Fox 29’s Sheinelle Jones will co-host the Awards & Scholarship Ceremony & Celebration. Tickets can be
purchased at [email protected]
