Reporter Hal Eisner To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

This year's Associated Press Television-Radio Association Mark Twain awards will honor KTTV FOX 11 Los Angeles reporter Hal Eisner as the winner of the Stan Chambers Award for Extraordinary Achievement for his decades of work as a broadcast journalist and his commitment to the future of the industry as a mentor to journalism students.

In addition to his 32-year career in Los Angeles TV, Eisner is also the dean of the APTRA Academy, an annual boot camp for aspiring broadcast journalists.

"Hal's accomplishments to journalism go beyond his ability to tell compelling stories on a wide range of topics," said APTRA board president Robby Messer. "Hal also helps set up young journalists for a lifetime of achievement by mentoring them at the various APTRA academies he plans." 

Eisner started as a radio reporter in Texas and became a correspondent for CNN in the early 1980s, moving to Los Angeles. He has covered everything from the O.J. Simpson trial to the 2012 Presidential primaries. 

Eisner is also a past-president of APTRA and has won numerous awards for his reporting. He was recently named a member of the advisory board of The Good News Foundation 

The award is named for long time KTLA anchor Stan Chambers, who retired in 2010 after 63 years. 

The APTRA Mark Twain Awards will be presented Saturday, June 22, at the Pasadena Convention Center. For dinner reservations and more information, go to www.aptra.org
