‘Worldfocus’ Wins Prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Congo Series

In October 2008, WNET.ORG’s 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 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 displacement of hundreds of thousands of Congolese, and another detailing the use of rape as a political weapon in the Congo.

Now, in recog- nition of Michael, Taylor, executive producer Marc Rosenwasser and producer Lisa Biagiotti‘s efforts to expose these war-wrought horrors, the night- ly news program has been honored with a Robert F. Kennedy Journal- ism Award for Crisis in the Congo: The Story of Pascal and Vestine.

“This two-part ‘Signature Story’ reflects the courage, timeliness and skill in bringing an underreported story to a large American audience,” WNET.ORG President Neal Shapiro tells us.

The Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award honors outstanding reporting on the lives and strife of disadvantaged people worldwide. Led by a committee of six independent journalists, the annual awards are judged by more than 50 journalists.
