Sheila Coronel takes on new challenge in Big Apple

A chat with Sheila Coronel, the first director of the just-opened Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism at Columbia University. She talks about her career in Manila and her views on investigative journalism in today's world.

In 1989, Coronel was already a highly respected reporter, but gave up her full-time job to start a non-profit organization: the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism.
Under her leadership, the PCIJ exposed cases of government corruption, political abuse and human and civil rights violations and became a model for journalists in other Southeast Asian countries.

Coronel talks about why she decided to move to New York City to take on the challenge of heading up a new teaching institution established by the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.
