Quake Journalist Gets Award

From RFA:

A Chinese newspaper reporter has been named as a recipient of a U.S.-based international award for his ground-breaking reports from the middle of last year’s devastating Sichuan earthquake.

Southern Weekend journalist Cao Junwu was named this week as a joint recipient of the 2009 Knight International Journalism Award, the Washington-based International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), which makes the award, said in a statement.

One of the first on the scene of the May 12 quake that killed 70,000 people, Cao traveled by helicopter and hiked along cliffs to reach the devastated area, which was cut off from the world by the destruction brought by the 8.0-magnitude tremor.
