USD student Taylor Moore receives Ed Bradley Scholarship
Moore is a senior contemporary media and journalism major who will graduate from USD in May. He was one of 11 RTDNF prestigious scholarship winners announced last week and will be honored at RTDNF’s First Amendment Awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 12. Moore and the other student scholars and fellowship recipient are also invited to Excellence in Journalism 2014, Sept. 4-6 in Nashville, Tenn. The scholarship is named for Bradley, the first African American at CBS to be a White House correspondent and a Sunday night anchor. During his 39-year career, Bradley covered everything from war to politics to sensitive portraits of artists. He won virtually every broadcast news award, including 19 Emmy Awards.
Moore was one of KYOT’s Coyote News anchors this fall and previously served as sports commentator and reporter for Coyote News. It was through his work as reporter for Coyote News that Moore developed a passion for storytelling. In his spare time he enjoys working with the University of South Dakota’s Union of African American Students as well as the USD Campus Activities Board.
