Featured journalist: Carol Rosenberg

Jul 23, 2014

Today it is our privilege to feature Carol Rosenberg, Guantanamo Reporter for the Miami Herald and the journalist to whom we all turn for definitive coverage on the infamous detention center. Rosenburg has covered Guantanamo Bay and related controversies longer than any journalist, from the arrival of the first prisoners on Jan. 11, 2002 through the present. The Supreme Allied Commander of Europe has even called her the "dean of the Guantanamo press corps." As for what it means to be a journalist, Rosenberg simply calls it a "front-row seat at history unfolding." And for PR folks wondering how she likes to be pitched? "Generally email, since I'm on the road a lot and my cellphone doesn't ring in Guantanamo."

Be sure to check out her Muck Rack portfolio here, showcasing work such as "The most expensive prison on earth" (with 930 shares) and "Navy nurse refuses to force-feed Guantánamo captive" (with 2,378 shares). Don't miss her awards page, either, which includes her shared Pulitzer on the Elian Gonzalez saga.

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
