Journalists Saltzman, Chivers, win prestigious Polk Awards

February 21, 2012

Jonathan Saltzman of Providence, a former ProJo scribe and Rhode Island Public Radio host, is part of a Boston Globe Spotlight Team report that won a George Polk Award, one of print journalism’s top honors.

Another Rhode Islander and former ProJo reporter, C.J. Chivers of the New York Times, captured the Polk award for military reporting.

Saltzman and the Globe team won for an investigative series that showed that a vast majority of drunk drivers in Massachusetts are found not guilty at trials decided by state judges instead of juries.

Saltzman lives in Providence with his wife, Nancy Safian and their children. Chivers lives in South Kingstown with his wife Suzanne Keating, also a former ProJo reporter, and their children.
