The War Next Door: Covering the Mexican Cartel Wars

After six months covering East Africa in 2012, followed by a year as NPR's national religion correspondent, John Burnett is now a roving reporter for NPR based in Austin, Texas. He has reported from more than 30 different countries since 1986 and has received wide acclaim for many of his investigative reports. His 2008 four-part series "Dirty Money" won three national awards: a Scripps Howard National Journalism Award for Investigative Reporting, a Sigma Delta Chi Society of Professional Journalists Award for Investigative Reporting and an Edward R. Murrow Award for the accompanying website. Burnett is also the author of a series of essays, Uncivlized Beasts and Shameless Hellions: Travels with an NPR Correspondent (Rodale Press, 2006).
