Miguel Marquez CNN – Career

Marquez covered the Covid-19 pandemic extensively, from inside overburdened emergency rooms and hospitals in New York City at the outset, to overburdened hospitals in Texas over the summer, to disease-ridden western and rural areas in the early autumn, to an enormous spike in cases in the winter, and finally, to the human and economic cost of the coronavirus across the United States.

Through the experience of doctors and personnel at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, Marquez gained unparalleled access to many hospitals, including enough to report for an hour on the horrifying situation in New York City early in the pandemic. Marquez has also written extensively about politics and the country’s political realignment. He covered protesters and voters during the 2016 election, and has since moved on to covering swing voters around the country, with a particular focus on the industrial Midwest and areas that shifted from Obama to Trump in 2016, as well as how they voted in 2020.

Marquez also covered the assassination of George Floyd by Minneapolis cops, as well as the ensuing protests and fallout. In the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody, he led CNN’s coverage from the heart of rioting and unrest in Baltimore. At the Monte-Carlo Television Festival in 2016, Marquez accepted a Golden Nymph Award on behalf of CNN for its coverage of Baltimore in 2015. Marquez also covered the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Jose Alvarenga, the castaway who spent six months at sea, and Pope Francis’ first overseas trip, World Youth Day, in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the Pope’s election in Rome.

He covered Colorado’s then-nascent marijuana sector extensively at home, as well as getting an exclusive tour of a sophisticated border tunnel near San Diego, CA. In 2013, he reported on the rampage of ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner across California, the rape of five Spanish tourists in Acapulco, Mexico, the Jodi Arias trial in Phoenix, Arizona, and the controversial book “Going Clear” on Scientology.

Marquez covered the 2012 US presidential election from five battleground states in a series of reports. He was a member of the crew that won an Emmy for CNN’s election night coverage in 2012. Marquez was nominated for an Emmy for his reporting on Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-targeted Zarqawi’s assassination by the US. From both Tripoli and Benghazi, he covered the Norway bombing and children’s camp atrocity, as well as anti-government rallies in Bahrain and the Libyan conflict. Marquez has traveled to Iraq on more than a dozen occasions, covering the fight at the height of the insurgency and the subsequent US-led surge strategy.
