WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 18, 2013) — The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) congratulates veteran journalist Terri Stewart on being named the National Editor at CBS News.

In her new role Stewart will be responsible for managing the network's day-to-day coverage of news and special events, coordinating the newsgathering efforts of all of the network's domestic bureaus, which provide content for all CBS News broadcasts.

"It is heartening to see that Terri Stewart has been asked to step into an even greater leadership role at CBS News," said NABJ President Gregory Lee, Jr.,Executive Sports Editor, South Florida Sun Sentinel "We note that in praising her prior work CBS' leadership credit her commitment to 'often shedding light on stories and people with little visibility', which is something news managers should strive to do in order to best serve our audiences."

Stewart had been the network's Northeast Bureau Chief overseeing news coverage in the multi-state region which stretched from Maine to Delaware. Additionally she was responsible for coordinating coverage from the Midwest. Previously she was a Deputy Bureau Chief, political unit producer, and a producer and then senior producer at CBS Newspath, the network's affiliate service.

"Strong organizations thrive because of diversity. Diversity of representation, diversity of experience, and diversity of opinion. We are confident that the breadth and depth of her experiences have prepared her for this opportunity, and that she will work towards making sure that newsroom diversity remains a strong part of the fabric of CBS."

Prior to her work at CBS News she was a producer at WCAU in Philadelphia, at what was then the CBS affiliate.

NABJ wishes Ms. Stewart much success in his new role.
