Howard Lett Newsperson of the Year

This award is named after the late Howard Lett (1932-1993)- a veteran broadcaster, educator and public relations consultant.

A true pioneer in Mississippi broadcast journalism; Howard Lett used his warm sense of humor and special abilities to enable his guests to feel relaxed and free to discuss even the most controversial subjects during his interviews.

The Mississippi Legislature proclaimed his accomplishments in House Concurrent Resolution 115:

"That the life and accomplishments of Howard Lett are hereby memorialized for the State of Mississippi and all the world as a true example of a remarkable and dedicated citizen whose long and distinguished career epitomizes a life rich in achievement and service to fellowman."
