"Mayor Bloomberg had a reputation for philanthropy and civic involvement before he was elected to public service," said Foundation Chair Philip J. Lombardo in a statement announcing the award. "Along with his business acumen and the impact he has had on broadcasting with Bloomberg News, make him an ideal recipient of the Golden Mike Award. We are grateful to the Mayor for accepting this award and for taking time from his schedule to join us on March 8th."
"I am honored to receive the 2010 Golden Mike Award from the Broadcasters Foundation of America, which is one of thousands of organizations around the country working towards a new era focused on service and giving back to our communities," said Mayor Bloomberg in a statement. "When tragedy strikes, the Broadcasters Foundation has been there to help their colleagues get back on their feet, and they should be commended for the work they have done to help hundreds of people across the nation."
Previous recipients of the Golden Mike Award include Anne Sweeney (2008), Jeff Smulyan (2006), Percy E. Sutton (2005), Bob Wright (2003), and Catherine Hughes (2002).
The Broadcasters Foundation provides aid to members of the broadcasting community hit by disease, catastrophic events or family tragedies.
