Ken Paulson, president and chief executive officer of the First Amendment Center, was among last year’s Missouri Honor Medal winners. The Missouri School of Journalism gives the annual awards for Distinguished Service in Journalism.
Paulson was the editor or managing editor at newspapers in five states, launched online newspapers and was part of the team that founded USA Today in 1982.
After receiving the honor medal, Paulson spoke with Global Journalist reporter Nina Pantic in the studio about his work to promote First Amendment issues. Global Journalist featured an excerpt from the interview, and Missouri School of Journalism professor Charles Davis joined host David Reed in the studio to add context to Paulson’s comments.
