Over nearly two decades at National Public Radio, Guy has been lucky enough to produce thousands stories. Here are just a handful.
In a special five-part series for All Things Considered, NPR's Guy Raz travels the length of the fabled Danube River — from its source in Germany to the Black Sea — and reports on how the river both unites and divides each of the nations that touch its banks. Monday's report begins in Germany, where even the origin of the river itself is cause for dispute.
NPR's Guy Raz reports from Khost in eastern Afghanistan, where a renegade warlord continues to defy the interim government in Kabul. The town is where Osama Bin Laden once had his command and control center and is now overrun with rebel fighters.
NPR's Defense Correspondent Guy Raz presents a three-part series on critical care in the war zone. Part One of the series starts with a look at an Army helicopter unit that flies to the battlefield to rescue those injured. Part Two examines the air force hospital at Balad Air Base, one of the most advanced combat field hospitals in the history of warfare. Finally, Part Three follows an injured soldier to a U.S. Army medical center in Landstuhl, Germany (Winner of Edward R. Murrow Award and Daniel Schorr Prize).

Now researchers at Johns Hopkins University are hoping Johnson can help unravel some of the mysteries of memory. (Winner of Gabriel Award)
Compton, Calif., was named the eighth most dangerous city in America last year. It's the city that put gansta rap on the map and turned Doctor Dre, Ice Cube and Easy-E into household names.
But in one little corner of the city, you're more likely to hear roosters crowing than the bark of a 9 mm. Welcome to the other Compton: Richland Farms. (Winner of National Association of Black Journalists Award)

Her article was the reason Malcolm X wanted to visit Brown.
