The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities has announced it will honor New Orleans native Cokie Roberts as its Humanist of the Year. Over the past 30 years, the award has been given out annually by the state’s humanities council as part of an effort to recognize the artists, authors and organizations making valuable contributions to the culture of the state.
The LEH’s Brian Boyles says NPR’s senior news analyst and ABC News’ political commentator was a perfect fit for the award.
