Juarez Journalist Sandra Rodríguez Nieto to Win Daniel Pearl Award

El Diario reporter Sandra Rodríguez Nieto will be honored with the Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism at this year’s Southern California Journalism Awards in Los Angeles.

Nieto covered political corruption and drug violence in the Mexican crime capital of Juárez, along the Texas border, for El Diario from 2003 until 2012–during which time two of her colleagues were killed for doing similar reporting.

“I didn’t think a lot about the danger,” she says, ice water, no doubt coursing vigorously through her veins. “I was convinced that my job as a journalist was the most important thing.”

Nieto will accept her award on June 23 in L.A.
