WSVN’s Carmel Cafiero Wins DuPont Award


Long-time WSVN investigative reporter Carmel Cafiero and producer Anthony Pineda have won a DuPont award for their 5-part investigative series called “Pill Mills”.

The investigation uncovered prescription drug abuse enabled by Miami-Dade area pain clinics. WSVN’s hidden cameras captured video of addicts legally buying and abusing prescription pain killers on the parking lots of area shopping centers.

Carmel Cafiero and Anthony Pineda’s excellent work helped pass a bill into law to control these pill mills. Previous efforts to control these clinics had failed.

Other winners are CBS and Katie Couric for her Sarah Palin interviews, HBO, WGBH the PBS affiliate in Boston and others
