The Interrupters wins duPont Award to cap year of success

The Interrupters has won a 2013 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, one of the highest honors available to broadcast journalism.

Steve James & Alex Kotlowitz's film, which aired on PBS through WGBH's FRONTLINE in February 2012, was praised by the awards committee for providing "new understanding of a stubborn societal problem through strong characters and excellent reporting, shooting and editing."

The film is one of 14 documentaries and news reports honored with Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award Silver Batons this year for "the strength of their reporting, storytelling and impact in the public interest." The awards are seen as the broadcast journalism equivalent of the Pultizer Prize.
