WATERVILLE, Maine — A New York Times reporter who could go to jail for not revealing the source of classified information is being honored by a Maine college for courageous journalism.

James Risen, who has refused to identify his source of classified information for a book that detailed the CIA's efforts against Iran's nuclear program, will receive Colby College's Lovejoy Award at an Oct. 5 ceremony.

Risen and his colleague, Eric Lichtblau, won a Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for a series of stories on the National Security Agency. He was also part of the group of journalists that won a Pulitzer Prize for its reporting on the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Past recipients of the Lovejoy award include author David Halberstam and Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward.
