How many press outlets have received two American Legion Fourth Estate Awards?
Five, either to the outlet or to individuals working for the outlet, since the inception of the award in 1958: the Chicago Tribune in 1959 and 1964, The Columbus Dispatch in 1966 and 1977, The Poughkeepsie Journal in 1989 and 1990, Nashville’s WTVF NewsChannel 5 in 2007 and 2011, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in 2011 and 2012. One (usually) award was presented yearly until 2011, when it split into three categories: Print, Broadcast and New Media.
