WASHINGTON, March 30 (UPI) -- "World News Tonight" co-anchor Bob Woodruff has received the Radio and Television Association's David Bloom award for excellence in enterprise reporting.

The award was accepted on his behalf in Washington Wednesday night by ABC Chief White House Correspondent Martha Raddatz, ABC News reported on its Web site.

Raddatz read a statement from Woodruff, who is recovering at a New York rehabilitation facility from injuries he suffered when a roadside bomb hit the convoy he was traveling with in Iraq.

"I am so honored to accept the David Bloom award not only because David was a true friend and colleague and because of what the award means," the statement said. "One thing that David and I shared was the belief that in order to really cover a story we need to be out in the field. You need to talk to the men and women who are shaping the story or are part of the events unfolding."

Bloom, an NBC News reporter, was killed in Iraq three years ago.
