Todd Starnes to Receive NRB Board of Directors Award

Manassas, VA – Todd Starnes will receive the NRB Board of Directors Award during the Awards Dinner on Tuesday, February 25, at the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.

The NRB Board of Directors Award honors a Christian who demonstrates integrity, displays creativity, and makes a significant impact on society. In recognition that broadcasting is not the only way to witness to the power of the Gospel, the award winner may or may not be in the field of electronic communications.

“Todd Starnes has had a very positive impact on society through his work at Fox News,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “I congratulate him on his creative approach to sharing current news with respect and integrity.”

Todd Starnes is the Host of FOX News & Commentary — heard daily on hundreds of radio stations. Throughout his journalism career, Todd has covered a number of high profile stories — taking him from Wall Street to the White House. He is a regular fixture on a number of FOX News Channel programs. His FoxNews.com column is read by millions of people. He also writes a weekly column for The Christian Post and TownHall.com.

Todd is the author of two books. Dispatches From Bitter America is a collection of essays detailing how President Obama has declared war on the values that made this country great. They Popped My Hood and Found Gravy on the Dipstick, published in 2009 and a best-seller, is a collection of humorous and inspirational stories from his open heart surgery in 2005. His third book, titled God Less America, will be released in May. The book chronicles attacks on religious liberty.
