ABC News Investigative Team Honored For Reports on Factory Conditions in Bangladesh

ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross and three investigative producers were presented with the 2013 Hillman Prize for Broadcast Journalism this week. Ross and Rhonda Schwartz, Matthew Mosk and Cindy Galli were honored for a series of reports on safety conditions at factories in Bangladesh which aired last year on “World News” and “Nightline.”

It is the second Hillman Prize on this topic for Ross and Schwartz. The pair won in 1992 for their reporting on NBC’s “Dateline” exposing conditions at factories used by Wal-Mart.

“We won a Hillman award for that work, and while it is a great honor to win it again at ABC News — is a true outrage that people continue to die in Bangladesh making clothes for the US market,” Ross tells TVNewser. “Sewing garments is not, and should not be, an inherently dangerous occupation, but it continues to be in Bangladesh.”

Eight people were killed Wednesday in a fire at a garment factory in Bangladesh. ABC News reports that the SEIU is joining public protests against Gap Inc. planned for this weekend over the dangerous working conditions in the country.
