TAB presents first Pieringer Award since 2005

Will Ripley, reporter/anchor at KRGV-TV, is TAB's 2008 Steve Pieringer Award winner.

TAB presented the award to Ripley on Aug. 7 at the Awards Gala, part of TAB's 55th Annual Convention & Trade Show.

Steve Pieringer was a reporter for Dallas? KRLD radio and television. In 1968, while covering a gasoline tank fire, he and several firefighters were overwhelmed by a secondary explosion.

It was given posthumously to his parents at TAB?s 1968 convention.

Over the years, the Pieringer Award has recognized Texas news men and women for many different reasons, such as providing lifesaving continuing coverage in an emergency, or being jailed for refusing to reveal a confidential source and even for suffering injury or death in the pursuit of the day?s news.
