Former 'Good Morning America' Hosts David Hartman and Joan Lunden to Receive Distinguished Service Award at 2017 NAB Show WASHINGTON, D.C.-- Popular media personalities and former co-hosts of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” David Hartman and Joan Lunden will receive the NAB Distinguished Service Award (DSA) during the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The duo will accept their awards at the NAB Show Opening, sponsored by Blackmagic Design, on Monday, April 24. Each year, the NAB DSA recognizes members of the broadcast community who have made significant and lasting contributions to the industry. Previous award recipients include Bob Woodruff, Jerry Lewis, Jorge Ramos, Bob Schieffer, Michael J. Fox, Mary Tyler Moore, President Ronald Reagan, Edward R. Murrow, Bob Hope, Walter Cronkite and Oprah Winfrey, among others. “Millions of Americans remember starting their day with the trusted voices of David Hartman and Joan Lunden during their years hosting ‘Good Morning America,’” said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. “We honor their remarkable careers, their service to broadcasting, and their ongoing commitment to public service with NAB’s highest honor.” The original host of “Good Morning America,” Hartman conducted more than 12,000 interviews with some of the world’s most influential public figures. In the early 1970s, he launched his own documentary production company with the goal of presenting constructive information to the American public. He has co-produced, written and hosted more than 60 hours of documentaries for the major television networks, PBS and cable. Hartman’s numerous journalism honors include National News and Documentary Emmys and the Aviation and Space Writers Journalism Award. He and then Governor Ronald Reagan were honored together by the San Francisco Press Club for their community service efforts. He continues to produce and write a dozen programs each year on the history of American military aviation and its efforts in space. Lunden became the co-host of “Good Morning America” in 1980 and went on to be the longest-running female host ever on early morning television. For nearly two decades, Lunden reported from 26 countries, covered five presidents, five Olympics, and two royal weddings. During her tenure on “Good Morning America,” Lunden broke barriers as one of the first female anchors to remain on air during three pregnancies. One of the most recognized and trusted news personalities, Lunden has graced the covers of over 60 magazines and is a best-selling author.
