She's also a frequent guest host for NPR news magazines, podcasts and special coverage. McCammon has been honored with numerous regional and national journalism awards, including the Atlanta Press Club's "Excellence in Broadcast Radio Reporting" award in 2015. She was part of a team of NPR journalists that received a first-place National Press Club award in 2019 for their coverage of the Pittsburgh synagogue attack.
NHPR’s Rick Ganley, host of Morning Edition, will lead conversation with McCammon to get her perspectives on politics in the nation’s capital and beyond. McCammon will also take questions from the audience, and questions will be moderated by Laura Knoy, Director of Community Engagement at the Rudman Center.
The Justice & Journalism series brings nationally renowned journalists to the Rudman Center for engaging conversations on public affairs and the public servants who create, implement, and influence public policy.
