Hagit Limor Wins National Award

Ch. 9 I-Team reporter Hagit Limor has won previous Sigma Delta Chi national awards for her reporting, but this one is special: She has won a feature reporting award (with Ch 9 editor Tony Mirones) for a 2006 story about her father, Menachem Limor. It's also the first I-Team report that she shot herself.
In December of 2005, Hagit traveled to Germany with her father, now 76. He had sued the German government for Social Security benefits for the time he was forced to work as a child for the Nazis in a Polish ghetto, during the Holocaust. She was her own one-person crew on the story. She also did all the research and writing for the story. It aired in February last year.
"What thrills me the most is that my dad and I can share this moment," says Limor, a Channel 9 reporter and anchor since 1994. "This is not for me. It’' for my dad. I'm going to hang it in my mom and dad's house in Nashville."
Limor and Mirones will be honored July 20 by the Society of Professional Journalists at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. She also won Sigma Delta Chi awards for best documentary in 2002 and investigative reporting in 2001.
