Background:[Photo]In Burma, as there are no active schools of journalism, `reporters are self-taught, or taught through on-the job training. With little formal training, Ms. Htay was a reporter at the Today Media group, where she was recruited by the AFP Bankok as an AFP stringer in Rangoon. Her position with AFP allows her to pursue stories other Burmese reporters do not and presents her with an international readership. Ms. Htay works under strict government surveillance and possible censorship. She was the first wire service reporter to visit the country's new capital in Pyimana, and the first and only wire service reporter to report from the tsunami-affected areas of the Irawaddy Delta.

Ms. Htay is interested in reporting on conflict situations and issues of ethics and censorship. She has not traveled outside of Southeast Asia and is looking forward to interacting with other professional reporters during her U.S. program.

Previous Foreign Travel:[Photo]U.S., Afghanistan, East Timor

Background:[Photo]In the first phase of his career, Mr. Lingao established himself as an outstanding investigative journalist, first in print media and then in television. Now, he has moved into a key management position at an up-and-coming television station. He moved into his current position when ABC-5, a new player in the vigorous Philippine TV industry, recruited him from the giant network, ABS-CBN, to be their News Operations Head. During the five years that he was executive producer of and senior correspondent for ABS-CBN's award-winning weekly investigative program "The Correspondents," Mr. Lingao demonstrated his commitment to dealing with important issues in a way that is both hard-hitting and fair. He saw to it that "The Correspondents" provided in-depth coverage of the conflict in southern Philippines. He regularly sent production teams to conflict-affected areas in Mindanao and thus was able to air reports that illuminated the underlying causes of the continuing violence.

Mr. Lingao's interests and experience go well beyond the Philippines. In August 2001, he traveled to East Timor to cover the elections there. He spent an extended period with international peacekeeping forces and reported extensively on East Timor's movement toward full independence. He was one of the first foreign journalists to enter Kabul after the collapse of the Taliban regime, and he returned to Afghanistan in the fall of 2004, reporting on the kidnapping and eventual release of an employee of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs. During that stay, he was embedded into a Belgian military unit, which enabled him to report on the effort to bring peace and security to Afghanistan.

Mr. Lingao is interested in gaining a better understanding of the
structure, practices, and future of television broadcast journalism in the U.S. He would like to examine how U.S. broadcast media leads to the formation of an informed citizenry within a diverse, democratic and decentralized society.

Previous Foreign Travel:[Photo]People’s Republic of China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Carribean and Central America, United States

Background:[Photo]Mr. Tung is a talented, aspiring broadcast journalist known for his strong reporting skills and capabilities to tackle in-depth news in almost every corner of Taiwan. Mr. Tung began his career as a Taipei-based reporter covering the Legislative Yuan, Taiwan's parliament, for CTI TV. He then switched to work as a TV correspondent covering Taiwan's Justice Ministry, cross-strait relations, and crime news in Kaohsiung, the largest city in Southern Taiwan. Currently he serves as a political reporter with Formosa Television covering issues focused on the Executive Yuan, Taiwan's cabinet. Formosa Television is a leading news organization that operates both terrestrial and cable channels.

Mr. Tung’s reporting is known for its thouroughness. For instance, Mr. Tung spent three years tracking a Chinese woman who illegally sneaked into Taiwan and later worked for a brothel. The report caught the attention of local audiences as it offered a rare insight into the dark side of growing private exchanges across the Taiwan Strait. During a news assignment covering victims of a strong typhoon, Mr. Tung and his cameraman made the difficult climb into the hills of central Taiwan to visit an aboriginal tribe that had been cut off from all traffic and communications. His exclusive footage and story inspired many whose homes were also devastated by floods in the storm. In addition to having a keen sense of the issues affecting Taiwan society, Mr. Tung has been capable of doing timely stories on the frequent changes in Taiwan's administration and to be able to delve further into such political phenomenon.

While Mr. Tung has studied in the U.K. and visited China and other foreign countries on news assignments, he has not had the opportunity to gain a first-hand exposure to U.S. democratic institutions, society and culture.
