Journalist involved in Edward Snowden's NSA leak to receive award from University of Georgia

The journalist most associated with the coverage of Edward Snowden's leak of phone and Internet surveillance by the National Security Agency will be this year's recipient of the University of Georgia's McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage.

Glenn Greenwald was a columnist for The Guardian and is now a founder of First Look Media's "The Intercept." He'll receive the award during a ceremony in the fall.

Last June, Greenwald was the first journalist to report that the NSA was collecting the telephone records of millions of U.S. customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecom providers.

Greenwald was nominated for the UGA award by Dorothy Parvaz, an editor at Al Jazeera English and last year's award recipient.
