This year’s honorees were recognized for their outstanding work and were nominated by NewsPro readers and members of the Radio Television Digital News Association and the Broadcast Education Association.
“It’s nice to see NewsPro–a leading publication in the broadcast news business–publicly declare that which we at Grady College always have known: that David Hazinski is an innovator and a leader in higher education,’ said Charles Davis, dean of Grady College. “David is a joy to work with, a rare mix of the classroom and the newsroom, with a personality as big as this building. His students and his former students always, always stop me just to tell me what he means to them.”
Hazinski, a new media professor at the University of Georgia, specializes in digital and broadcast news. He owns Intelligent Media Consultants, which helps to launch eight TV networks around the world, including Aaj Tak, CNN-IBN in India and GEO TV in Pakistan.
Prior to working at Grady College, Hazinski served as an international correspondent for NBC News for six years and a reporter for TV stations in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Pittsburgh. He spent two years as a writer, co-host and technology advisor of the international syndicated World Business Review with Casper Weinberger, the secretary of defense under President Ronald Reagan.
In addition, Hazinski has trained national news anchors and reporters such as ESPN anchor Maria Taylor and Fox News correspondent Will Carr. He has been appointed a Senior Teaching Fellow, and holds a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professorship, the university’s highest teaching award.
Hazinksi has announced his retirement at the end of this academic year.
