WFAA is pleased to announce anchor John McCaa was awarded the University of North Texas' highest journalism honor Wednesday afternoon.
McCaa was added to the Mayborn School of Journalism's C.E. Shuford Hall of Honor.
Veteran journalist Bill Moyers was the first winner back in 1982. Since then, the prize has gone to Pulitzer Prize winners and others who excel in the field of journalism.
McCaa is the third journalist from News 8 to win the award, joining former WFAA staffers Bert Shipp and Marty Haag.
