Larry Madowo interviewing a woman for a story

CNN International correspondent Larry Madowo is going against odds in ensuring he gets stories to his viewers as they are.

In his latest story he is covering from Nigeria, Larry shared a photo amassed in deep waters that leave only his upper body exposed as he gets an interview with a woman.

In his caption, Larry noted that what he was doing was ‘in-depth’ reporting alluding to the spot he was standing on.

The photo did not go silent as it received enormous reactions from his followers and fellow journalists.

Madowo’s courage is a representation of what many journalists are willing to do to grasp stories.

While Larry’s case may be brave, other braver journos have dared what many would not to get stories to their viewers

In 2007 during his time at CNN, Jeff Koinange reported from a deep rebel zone in Niger Delta where he was sorrounded by rebels armed to the teeth.

The story did not go sit well with his bosses as a section of them believed it was stage managed which eventually got him fired.
