Director, Round Earth Media Program
Mary Stucky is the founder and director of the IWMF’s Peabody Award-winning program Round Earth Media. Stucky is a veteran journalist with more than 30 years of experience reporting from the United States, Mexico, Central and South America and North Africa primarily for National Public Radio.
Stucky created Round Earth Media to help develop a new generation of global correspondents and to cover issues and places that are ignored in this era of shuttered foreign bureaus and shrinking newsrooms. Stucky’s reports on Chinese and Hmong immigrants were part of the documentary series “Crossing East,” which won a 2006 Peabody Award. Her other awards include the New York Festival’s Gold World Medal and the Donna Allen Award for contributions of a woman to the field of journalism from the American Journalism Historians Association.
Stucky graduated from Carleton College majoring in History with honors and has received the college’s Distinguished Alumni Award.
