George Bistis, chief of Voice of America’s Greek Service, received the 2007 Gusi Peace Prize Award for Broadcast Journalism at a ceremony in the Philippines.

Bistis said he shares the award with his colleagues at the VOA, and dedicated the award to the Greek-American community “that upholds and defends the principles of Hellenism, freedom, democracy and compassion, on which the U.S is founded.” He also paid tribute to Greek-Americans who have inspired his work.

The Manila-based Gusi Peace Prize Foundation is a non-profit organization that gives awards to individuals worldwide based on their contributions to peace and human rights.
