Former CA Cartoonist Bill Day Honored

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2010 at 10:58 AM

Congressman Steve Cohen joined with over 1,000 journalists, media, public relations and corporate executives to honor the work of Bill Day, a syndicated editorial cartoonist from Memphis, at the 27th Annual National Press Foundation Awards Dinner Wednesday.

“I was honored to join Bill, his wife Susan and their three sons last night as he was recognized by his peers for his media contributions,” Cohen said. “Whether it is shining a light on crime, poverty or the scourge of infant mortality, Bill’s artwork lives up to what he has called the theme of his work, the defense of the oppressed.”

Day received a Special Citation for his work addressing the growing rate of infant mortality in the United States. Other honorees last night included: the CBS News program 60 Minutes, Brianna Keilar of CNN, Julie Hirschfeld Davis of the Associated Press, Colbert I. King of The Washington Post, and The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

Day’s award-winning cartoons are available to newspapers worldwide three times a week through United Feature Syndicate, and it is widely reprinted in major national magazines including Newsweek, Time, U.S. News and World Report and Business Week.

The former Commercial Appeal cartoonist was let go by the paper last year during a staff reduction.
