Congratulations to our friend Mark Potter, who received a regional Silver Circle Award at the 2012 Suncoast Emmy Awards on Saturday night:
"During his 37 year journalism career, Mark has reported from all over the United States, as well as South America, Central America and the Caribbean, including Haiti and Cuba, the South Pacific, the Philippines and Israel. Much of his career was spent with investigative units at both the national and regional levels, and he has reported on topics including politics, narcotics and immigrant smuggling, environmental issues, natural disasters, international conflicts and numerous high profile court cases."
We interviewed Mark for Square Grouper because of his exceptional exposes on the Ethopian Zion Coptic Church and Everglades City. He'll also appear in our upcoming documentary Cocaine Cowboys: Remix, coming in 2013.
