Andrea Mitchell, chief foreign affairs correspondent for NBC News, was awarded the Joseph M. Quinn Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Los Angeles Press Club on Sunday night, noted the Politico Media morning newsletter.

The award, which is the club’s highest honorary achievement, was handed to Mitchell at the 59th SoCal journalism awards gala.

Addressing guests at the gala event, the veteran correspondent said:

“Rarely have we been as needed as we are today… None of us can do this alone.”

Mitchell is now covering her seventh presidential administration and has no plans on slowing down, added the Politico Media morning newsletter.

"I know this is a lifetime achievement award, but this one isn't over!” she said upon receiving the award.

Mitchell has been a leading reporter at NBC for nearly 40 years.

She has extensive experience as a political reporter, and as a lead correspondent for numerous presidential campaigns and administrations, including more than 20 years reporting on the Clintons, said The International Women’s Media Foundation.

She has covered the complex U.S.-Cuban relationship for decades and led network coverage of the historic thaw with the island country, beginning in 2014.

Additionally, Mitchell’s past assignments for NBC News have included exclusive reports from North Korea, Afghanistan, the Middle East, Bosnia, Kosovo, Pakistan and Haiti.

Noting her achievements, The International Women’s Media Foundation said Mitchell had been honored with the Matrix Award, the Goldsmith Career Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Leonard Zeidenberg Award.

Taking to social media later that evening, the award winning journalist thanked NBC News' Katy Tur, who introduced Mitchell to guests at the gala.

Posting a photo on Twitter, she captioned it:

Thank you to my friend and colleague @KatyTurNBC for the kind words tonight at the @LAPressClub.

Receiving the Joseph M. Quinn Award for Lifetime Achievement means Mitchell joins a select group of distinguished journalists, including a number of Pulitzer Prize and Peabody Award winners.

The award was named in honor of Joe Quinn, who died in 1977, said the LA Press Club.

Quinn was a veteran reporter, war correspondent and wire service editor who took over a floundering City News Service in the mid-1950s and built it into a successful news-gathering organization.

Quinn was also president of the Los Angeles Press Club 42 years.
