Frank + Laura + Tamoa's Special Day (Updated)

0

Three Caracas-based journalists were honored at the Columbia Journalism School’s Cabot Prizes this year: the AP’s legendary Frank Bajak takes a prize, while one time Ultimas Noticias investigative power duo Laura Weffer and Tamoa Calzadilla get a special citation. Their awards are richly deserved.

Three of their highlights: Bayak’s story on the colectivos in Venezuela (co-authored with Fabiola Sanchez), Weffer’s story on the guarimbas, and the Últimas Noticias story on the videos surrounding the February 12th shooting that has landed Leopoldo López in jail.

Congratulations!
