At GIJC13: Abraji Homage to Pioneering Editor Marcos Sá Corrêa

CorreaAt the Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Rio, October 12-15, the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji) will pay homage to senior journalist Marcos Sá Corrêa.

Corrêa worked for the daily Jornal do Brasil as photographer, reporter, and editor-in-chief. He was also editor at the weekly magazines Veja, Época and Piauí and directed O Dia newspaper.

Corrêa was an online news pioneer. He is the founder of O Eco, covering environmental issues, and of No and NoMínimo. He also contributed with articles for O Estado de S.Paulo and Isto É. In 1975, he used documents released by the Lyndon Johnson Library to write an article on Operation Brother Sam, in which the CIA gave covert support to the military coup in Brazil in 1964.

The homage to Corrêa will be held at the awards event of the Global Conference, on Monday, October 14. Also featured will be announcements of three major investigative reporting awards: the Global Shining Light Award by the Global Investigative Journalism Network; the Daniel Pearl Award by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists; and the Latin American Investigative Journalism Awards.
