From ‘Today girls’ to journos

Gracie Awards honor Guthrie, Mullins, Garcia-Navarro

Gathering voices from public radio and faces from TV news, the 37th annual Gracie Awards honored programming by, for and about women at its ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday night.

Honors went to Savannah Guthrie of “Today,” Lisa Mullins of Public Radio International and Lourdes Garcia-Navarro of NPR.

“We all know that ‘Today’s’ on-air female anchors were once called ‘Today girls,’ but now everyone just calls them some of the best journalists in the business,” said Guthrie.

Other winners included “20/20’s” Anna Schecter for her work on feature “The Peace Corps: Trust Betrayed,” which investigated the murder of Peace Corps volunteer Kate Puzey in 2009, and Tricia Brock for her helmer work on shows including “30 Rock” and “Breaking Bad.”

“She is on a great and inspiring journey and really embodies a quote that I love,” presenter Sally Field said of Brock. ” ‘It’s never too late to be what you might have been.’ “
