Congrats to April Ryan! She has been selected as the 2017 Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).

The annual award recognizes a black journalist who has a distinguished body of work that has extraordinary depth, scope, and significance to people of the African Diaspora.

A 30-year journalism veteran, Ryan has a unique vantage point as the only black female reporter covering urban issues from the White House – a position she has held for American Urban Radio Networks (AURN) since January 1997.
