KAMBER WINS BERGER AWARD

Voice writer Michael Kamber has won the 2002 Mike Berger Award for his three-part series "Crossing to the Other Side," which documented the migration of impoverished Mexicans to New York City. Kamber will share the award with Wall Street Journal reporter and former Voice writer Lucette Lagnado. This is the third consecutive year that a Voice writer has won the award. In 2001 staff writer Jennifer Gonnerman won it, and in 2000 former staff writer Guy Trebay won it for the second time. Since 1961, Voice writers have won the award eight times. Presented by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the award honors feature reporting in the tradition of the late Meyer Berger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times.
