John Daly gets lifetime achievement award from RTNDA

Veteran TV journalist John Daly was recognized for a stellar career with the Radio Television Digital News Association’s (RTNDA) Canada Lifetime Achievement award at a gala dinner last night.

Daly, whose career spanned over 35 years with BCTV and then Global BC, broke some of the province’s biggest stories, from police executing a search warrant at the home of a B.C. Premier to his reporting on the worst gang violence in B.C.’s history.

Also recognized at the event with a lifetime achievement award was Cecilia Walters.

“Cecilia and John epitomize the very high standard of journalism in British Columbia, their lifetime achievement awards recognizes and celebrates the incredible contribution they have made to the journalistic fabric of our community,” RTDNA President Ian Koenigsfest said in a release.

“While the legacy of their work will always be remembered they also need to be acknowledged for the mentoring they have provided to so many young and aspiring journalists.”

Walters anchored CBC Radio’s local morning newscasts for almost 20 years, and before that, co-anchored CBC’s local news in the 1980s.
