Jenny Glick, WTOP reporter and lecturer at Loyola, receives Gracie Award

Jenny Glick, lecturer in journalism

Congratulations to communication department lecturer and WTOP reporter Jenny Glick who was named as a 2020 Gracie Award recipient for her reporting on eating disorders, “Starving for Perfection.” The Gracie Award is a prestigious honor given by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation to recognize exemplary programming created by, for, and about women in radio, television, and interactive media.

“I feel honored to have received such a prestigious award,” said Glick. “My hope is that more people will listen to the story and understand that an eating disorder is not a choice—it’s a destructive and potentially life-threatening mental illness. I hope students who listen to the story will take away that a story is only as good as its sources. It’s our job as reporters to not share our own opinion, but to find the best storytellers.”
