All-news cabler CNN was honored for best TV spot news reporting for its coverage of U.S. air strikes against Iraq and President Clinton's impeachment hearings. Boston pubcaster WGBH snagged the award for best foreign affairs docu for the "Frontline" presentation "Ambush in Mogadishu."

Publications taking home awards included Time, Business Week and the Washington Post. Newsweek editor Maynard Parker posthumously won the org's top honor, the President's Award.
