The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) announces journalist, Jane Pauley, who also anchors "CBS Sunday Morning," will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 42nd Annual Gracie Awards Luncheon. Award-winning "CBS Sunday Morning" journalist Martha Teichner will present Pauley with the award. Dylan Dreyer, weather anchor of NBC News' "Weekend Today" and regular co-host for "Today," will serve as host. This annual event, which honors the accomplishments of local and student women in media and entertainment, will take place on June 27 in New York City.

"The Gracie Awards are the industry's chance to pause and recognize women and men who use their voice and creativity to bring stories to life, every day," said AWMF Chair and Imagine Communications Chief Product Officer/Advertising Management Sarah Foss Systems. "Speaking personally, Jane Pauley, her journalist acumen and strong representation of women as valid voices, was the reason that I joined the media industry. I know that her timeless work has inspired legions of women and men for decades and continues to move her viewers today."

Pauley is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author. She was named anchor of 'CBS Sunday Morning" in September 2016. She joined the program in 2014 as a contributor and has delivered newsmaking interviews including Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the only TV interview with David Letterman about his retirement from late night television. She's also reported about a group of educators who lived through the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. She began her network television career in 1976 as a co-host of NBC's "Today" show. She spent 13 years on the morning broadcast, and a decade as the anchor of "Dateline NBC," starting in 1992. She was the host of the syndicated daytime series, "The Jane Pauley Show" in 2004.

"I have so much to be grateful for and so many to thank," said Pauley. "A Lifetime Achievement Award recalls colleagues, partners and mentors, and in particular, all the women in our industry whose perseverance and tenacity opened the doors for my generation and everyone since."
