(editorandpublisher.com)–USA Today breaking news reporter Yamiche Alcindor has been selected by the National Association of Black Journalists as the 2013 Emerging Journalist of the Year.

At USA Today, Alcindor has reported from the scenes of some of the biggest stories this past year.

In 2012, she traveled to Sanford, Fla., to cover the Trayvon Martin story; to Tallahassee, Fla., to cover the Florida A&M University hazing scandal; and to Newtown, Conn., to cover the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“It is inspiring to see young journalists like Yamiche take advantage of every opportunity presented them to learn, to grow and to thrive,” said NABJ president Gregory Lee Jr.
