Whoopi Goldberg can add another accolade to her already-full awards shelf. Temple's School of Media and Communication will bestow the Lew Klein Excellence in the Media Award on Golberg on October 17. Previous honorees include Matt Lauer, Robin Roberts and Anderson Cooper.

The award is named after Lew Klein, a broacast legend and Temple adjunct.

Joining Goldberg on the dais will be alumni award winners, including, E. Steven Collins, director of urban marketing/external relations at Radio One Inc.; 6ABC reporter David Henry, ESPN anchor Kevin Negandhi and Deborah Veney Robinson who is the senior communications officer for external communications for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Kanye West's producer and engineer Noah Goldstein will receive the Rising Star award.
