Julie Tam was given the Asian American Journalists Association 2012 Member of the Year Award at the organization’s national convention at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, August 2, for her leadership as chair of a fundraiser that raised over $10,000 in online voting for Asian-American men in broadcast to appear in a 2012-13 calendar, plus another $15,000 donated by GM/Buick. She did it with the help of committee members Richard Lui (MSNBC), Owen Lei (formerly of KING-TV Seattle), Howard Chen (Comcast Sports), Ko Im (WUSA-TV Washington, D.C.), and Eileen Teves (KENS-TV San Antonio), as well as the AAJA National Staff and Officers.
