Sample article from our Printing & Publishing

July 10, 2024 (press release) –

We are proud to share that Frances Robles is one of four gold medal winners of the Maria Moors Cabot Prize from the Journalism School at Columbia University for outstanding reporting in the Americas. The Cabot Prize honors journalists and news organizations for career excellence and coverage of the Western Hemisphere that furthers inter-American understanding.

Frenchie started covering Latin America in 1998 for The Miami Herald, where she covered Cuba, protests in Venezuela and the collapse of governments in Ecuador, Argentina and Bolivia.

In 2013, she joined The Times, where she has covered the migrant crisis from the perspective of Central American children, embarked on investigations into corruption in Haiti and chronicled Nicaragua’s spiral toward dictatorship.

She was a key member of a Times team that won the George Polk Award in 2021 for international reporting for coverage of the assassination of the Haitian president Jovenel Moïse. Her investigation into the shoddy work of a Brooklyn homicide detective led to more than a dozen murder convictions being overturned and won a Polk award in 2013 for justice reporting.

She was a contributor to two Pulitzer Prize-winning teams while at The Miami Herald, the first in 1999 for investigative reporting on pervasive voter fraud in a mayoral election and the second in 2001 for breaking news reporting for the federal raid in the Elián González case. On three occasions, she has been part of teams that were finalists for a Pulitzer Prize, including in 2022 for international reporting for The Times for coverage of the assassination of Haiti’s president.

Congratulations to Frenchie and all the winners.
