At the 56th Annual Jesse H. Neal Business Journalism Awards in March, Rick Bush, editorial director of Transmission & Distribution World, was awarded the “Timothy White Award for Editorial Integrity” by the American Business Media.

The Timothy White Award is a very special honor that acknowledges the challenges and pressures that editors face daily. Named after the longtime and outspoken editor of Billboard magazine, the award is given annually to an editor whose work displays courage, integrity and passion.

Recipients of the Timothy White Award serve as the “conscience” of their publication and fearlessly support important industry causes. They stand up to outside pressures — whether from advertisers or industry executives — that threaten to interfere with the goal of placing readers first and maintaining independent, honest and ethical journalism.

The entire team at T&D World proudly congratulates Rick on this well-deserved honor.
