This humble corner of cyberspace has long recognized Frank Bajak of AP as top of the heap when it comes to reporting the news from South America. Now it’s official: He’s won the Cabot Prize and here come the extracts
“… those being honored include Frank Bajak, chief of Andean news for The Associated Press; Tracy Wilkinson, Mexico bureau chief for The Los Angeles Times; Paco Calderon, cartoonist with El Heraldo de Mexico, and Giannina Segnini, until recently the editor of the investigating team of La Nacion in Costa Rica.
Columbia said Bajak is “fast on the keys when news is breaking, then quick to provide insightful background to the events.”
Nobody deserves this more than Bajak. Full kudos, sir.
