Miami Herald wins Esserman-Knight Journalism Prize for investigative reporting
Brown and Michot are the winners of a $10,000 prize.
“Emily and I are very honored and grateful that our work is being recognized with this prestigious award,” Brown said in a statement. “We hope that our work, and those of other journalists across the nation now facing danger while on the front lines of truth, demonstrate how vital journalism is to our democracy.”
The Esserman-Knight Journalism Prize honors the best reporting in South Florida and the prize money is part of a $2.5 million investment that Ron and Charlene Esserman and their children made in local journalism in February, in partnership with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
