A radio program produced by John Rudolph '75, “Feet in Two Worlds: Immigrants in a Global City” recently received the Society of Professional Journalists 2005 Sigma Delta Chi Award for excellence in journalism. The award was presented in the Public Service in Radio Journalism category.
Rudolph's program was produced in partnership with WNYC, New York Public Radio, Minnesota Public Radio and The Center for New York City Affairs at The New School.
This year's winners were chosen from more than 1,200 entries in 49 categories including print, radio, television and online.
