CPB :: The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) today announced that Lourdes Garcia-Navarro, NPR foreign correspondent, will receive the Edward R. Murrow Award, which recognizes individuals for their outstanding contribution to public radio. Garcia-Navarro is perhaps best known for her coverage of the Middle East. Over the past year, her reports have been an important part of NPR’s coverage of the Arab Spring. She was one of the first reporters to enter Libya after the uprising last year, providing powerful and sound-rich descriptions of the conflict. Now based in Jerusalem, Garcia-Navarro has turned her attention to reporting on the challenges Libya and other affected countries face after the liberation.
