NAHJ Journalism Awards Honor the Best of 2008

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/23/09 -- Crusading education coverage, investigations that saved lives of liver transplant patients, and a detailed telling of the Bush administration's economic legacy headlined the excellent work honored in the National Association of Hispanic Journalists' 2009 Journalism Awards announced this week.

Among the eight awards given, the honor in the TV Investigative category went to a probe into a cover up by authorities to hide the number of suicides by veterans, led by CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian and producer Pia Malbran. A revealing look at the dangerous and often horrendous trek by Central Americans crossing through Mexico to get to the U.S. by La Opinión writer Gardenia Mendoza Aguilar won this year's Guillermo Martinez Marquez Award for Latin American Reporting.
