The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) extends sincerest congratulations to CNN all platform journalist Sarah Hoye who is to be honored as the recipient of The Women’s Media Center’s 2012 Carol Jenkins Award.

The award is named in honor of black journalist Carol Jenkins, an Emmy-award winning former journalist who served as The Center’s first president. The annual award is given to a journalist who shows tremendous promise, and Hoye will be just the second recipient.

Hoye has been with CNN since 2010 and is based in Philadelphia where she covers regional stories, breaking news and contributes to the network’s coverage of stories across the United States. She is currently covering the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which affected the Delaware Valley, but left badly battered the state of New Jersey.

Among the other stories she has covered the high-profile sex abuse trial of a Philadelphia priest, the Penn State scandal, and Philadelphia’s mob violence. In addition to hard news she frequently contributes feature stories, which offer a slice of life throughout Greater Philadelphia.

She began her career as a reporter at The Lexington Herald-Leader, and later worked for The Milwaukee Sentinel, and The Tampa Tribune/WFLA News Channel 8.

When she is not busy at work for CNN, she is active within NABJ serving as Student Multimedia Project Manager mentoring the next generation of journalists.

This year Hoye also earned the 2012 Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ) Online Journalist of the Year award.
