Jon Alpert
A filmmaker and producer Jon Alpert has won eleven National Emmy Awards for News and Documentary Programs and one National Emmy for Sports Documentary. Over the past thirty years, he has consistently gained access to behind-the-scenes events of historical significance and interviewed world leaders when other reporters were not allowed in. After the Vietnam War, he was the first American TV crew to film in Vietnam. When Fidel Castro came to address the United Nations in 1979, his team was the only non-Cubans allowed access to Castro. After the Gulf War, he was the only reporter to have interviewed Saddam Hussein. More than a hundred of his reports from Vietnam, Cuba, the former Soviet Union, China, Nicaragua, Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq and all parts of the United States have been widely broadcasted on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO, PBS, ESPN, Canadian and Japanese major networks. Alpert is the Co-founder and Co-Director of the Downtown Community Television Center, America’s largest and most honored non-profit community media center which is located in a landmark Tribeca firehouse.
