‘Worldfocus’ Wins RFK Journalism
Award for Congo Series

In October 2008, Worldfocus traveled to eastern Congo as fighting in the decade-long civil war there – which has been called the deadliest conflict since World War II – intensified. The two-man crew was comprised of correspondent Michael J. Kavanagh and cameraman and producer Taylor Krauss.

Two months later, Worldfocus anchor Martin Savidge would take to the PBS airwaves with one story about the displace- ment of hundreds of thousands of Congolese, and another detailing the use of rape as a political weapon in the Congo.

Now, in recognition of the Michael, Taylor, executive producer Marc Rosenwasser and producer Lisa Biagiotti’s efforts to expose these war-wrought horrors, the nightly news program has been honored with a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Crisis in the Congo: The Story of Pascal and Vestine.

BlogTalkRadio congratulates the entire Worldfocus team for its outstanding work.
