One of the legacies inspired by the late broadcast journalist’s career is the Daniel Schorr Journalism Prize, now seeking contenders for the ninth year. Boston’s WBUR will award the $5,000 prize to the journalist, age 35 or younger (as of June 30, 2010) who’s principally responsible for a news story or segment “of significance and quality  . . . that celebrates the new generation of journalists in public radio” (that aired the 12 months before that date on a CPB-qualified pubradio station.) One entry per journalist. Entry deadline: Sept. 17. Details here.
