John Burnett is a roving NPR correspondent based in Austin, Texas. His beat stretches across the U.S., and, sometimes, around the world. Normally, he focuses on the issues and people of the Southwest United States. His special reporting projects have included New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. invasion of Iraq and its aftermath, and many reports on the Drug War in the Americas. But also, in the months following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Burnett reported from New York City, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In 2004, Burnett won a national Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio-Television News Directors Association for investigative reporting for his story on the accidental U.S. bombing of the Iraqi village of Al-Taniya, which claimed 31 lives. His reports are heard regularly on NPR’s newsmagazines Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition.
