The reporter - who underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder and returned five months later to her post - will be presented with the trophy April 5 at the fourth annual Diane Von Furstenberg Awards.

The DVF Awards were created in 2010 by von Furstenberg and The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation.
