OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has presented its Lifetime Achievement Award to veteran journalist John Greiner and meteorologist Gary England.

The men were honored Saturday in Oklahoma City at the group's annual awards banquet. Winners of SPJ's contest in the categories of newspaper, television, radio, magazine, online and public relations also were announced.

Greiner spent 37 with The Oklahoman, covering the state Capitol and politics. The Oklahoma Senate issued a resolution praising Greiner upon his retirement.

England has been with KWTV NEWS 9 in Oklahoma City for 38 years, and is known for making complex weather principles understandable to the average person. England recently received the Edward R. Murrow Award for breaking news/weather among large television markets.
