Spotlight on Washington, DC Ceremony MC Barbara Harrison

May 16, 2013

This week we are spotlighting long-time friend of the Prize, Barbara Harrison. A local NBC news anchor in Washington, DC, Harrison has been the Master of Ceremonies for the DC Goldman Prize ceremony for nine years.

Before moving to Washington, DC in 1981, Harrison worked as a news anchor for KGO-TV in San Francisco. She knew Mr. Richard Goldman for many years.

Harrison has been honored with several awards for her work including several Emmys, the Ted Yates Award for outstanding community service, and an award from the International Film and TV Festival of New York for a half-hour special she reported and produced, “The Healing of Kuwait.”

Year after year Harrison brings great energy and aplomb to the Goldman Prize ceremony, and year after year we are grateful for her dedication and efforts to spotlight the work of the Goldman Prize recipients. Thank you, Barbara!
