Writers Guild of America East Honors Philip V. Pilato of 1010 WINS

Award to be presented Feb. 1

The Writers Guild of America East has selected Philip V. Pilato as the recipient of its Richard B. Jablow Award for service.

The honor will be presented on February 1 in New York at the 66th Annual Writers Guild Awards. Bob Schneider, the current WGA East secretary-treasurer and the most recent recipient, will make the presentation.

A member of the Writers Guild since 1982, Pilato has worked as an editor and service aide for New York’s 1010 WINS. He was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in 2009, which he wrote about for CBS New York. Throughout his health issues, he has continued to volunteer for numerous committees and currently serves on the guild’s executive council.

The Jablow Award was established in 1978 to recognize service to the guild.

“Not only is Phil Pilato a skilled news writer and editor, he has devoted an enormous amount of his scarce free time working tirelessly on behalf of his colleagues as a valued member of the Writers Guild East Council and the Guild’s executive committee,” said Michael Winship, president of WGA East. “His name will be a distinguished addition to the roster of Jablow Award recipients.”
