Bob Bottom honoured by journalism school

Investigative journalist Bob Bottom has been honoured with an honorary doctorate by a Queensland journalism college.

Director of Brisbane’s Jschool Professor John Henningham today conferred the school’s first honorary Doctor of Journalism degree on Mr Bottom at a graduation ceremony in Brisbane.

The award recognised Mr Bottom’s achievements in journalism over more than 40 years, particularly his investigations into organised crime and corruption in Australia.

Queensland-based Mr Bottom said he was honoured by the recognition and said he had never sought awards as as he considered journalism to be a public service.
