Seven News has been honoured with a top US journalism award for their story of a rescue in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake.
Journalist Mike Amor and cameraman Huw Mathieson have won Edward R. Murrow Awards for Excellence in Breaking News Coverage after they aided in the rescue of a baby girl from the rubble.
A Nine news crew were also on hand to aid in the rescue that day but failed to get footage of the actual rescue as cameraman Richard Moran was helping at the time.
Seven News was the only Australian network to be honoured from the 62 news organisations.
Peter Meakin, Seven’s Director of News and Public Affairs, said of the win: “This is a great honour, richly deserved. Mike and Huw’s story was a wonderful combination of professionalism and humanity. We are incredibly proud of them.”
