Exemplary breaking news coverage from across the region

Under difficult conditions, NBC News’ coverage of the Arab Spring uprisings, led by the stellar reporting of Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel, was consistently outstanding. From Tunisia to Egypt, and Libya to Yemen, Engel reported from the frontlines with skillful substantive stories that were rich in insight. With his knowledge of the region and command of Arabic, Engel showed enterprise in reporting on this fast- changing story and helped audiences understand the dramatic events half a world away. Stories about socioeconomic tensions among Egypt’s poor gave context to the larger story. Standing with protesters in Tahrir Square or on the frontlines of the conflict in Libya, this body of work by NBC News and Richard Engel covered a complex story with unique challenges: technical, reportorial and logistical.
