A bit of Buffalo in DC

Below are a few photos from the National Press Foundation Awards Dinner, which was quite an honor to be a part of; I did my best to represent our fine city. Here is a shot my wife took of me and Robert Siegel, legendary host of NPR's All Things Considered, and one of my very favorite journalists:

Robert won the W.M. Kiplinger Award for Distinguished Contributions to Journalism. Then I experienced a wonderful Buffalo moment on stage. CNN's Wolf Blitzer, a Buffalo native, accepted the Sol Taishoff Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism. And Mark Drajem, also a Buffalo native, won the Feddie Award along with another Bloomberg reporter. Mark's father Robert managed to get a great shot of the three of us:

Wolf was gracious and down to earth in person. He even gave a shout out to me and Canisius College, my alma mater, since he will be giving the commencement address in May.

Another shot of me and Mark Drajem at the VIP event before the dinner...

The Buffalo theme even continued to the after party, as Tom Toles (my predecesor here at the News) performed in his journalist band Suspicious Package.
