NACC Alumnus Wins National Award
Northeast Alabama Community College alumnus Jeremy Campbell was
honored recently with the Salute to Excellence Award in
International Reporting by the National Association of Black
Journalists (NABJ) at its annual gala celebration in
Philadelphia. He was recognized for "Stories from Uganda," a
series of television reports Campbell shot in Africa.
NABJ recognizes journalism that best covered the black
experience. The competition honors work from print, television,
and radio. Campbell's stories were judged against submissions
from the nation's largest television markets.
Currently he's working on-air at WTVT, the top-rated news
station in Tampa. Before his career took him to Florida,
Campbell reported for television stations in Louisiana, where he
won multiple awards from the Louisiana Associated Press, and
Birmingham, where the Alabama Broadcasters Association named him
best reporter in the state. Campbell has also earned a
prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award.
Campbell is a graduate of Scottsboro High School and attended
NACC before graduating from Auburn University. He is the son of
Dr. and Mrs. David Campbell of Langston.
