Mark Greenblatt joined ABC News in February 2012 as a New York-based correspondent for all programs and platforms. From 2004 to 2011, Greenblatt was an investigative reporter for KHOU-TV in Houston, winning nearly every major journalism award in broadcasting. His reporting has had a major impact on reforms at the local, state and national levels of government. For example, he exposed ongoing sexual discrimination and financial corruption in the highest ranks of the Texas National Guard, which led to the removal of three generals and to new laws to prevent similar problems in the future. In addition, Greenblatt uncovered the negligence of the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office to inspect hundreds of public schools for safety problems. As a result of his reports, an emergency task force was created to immediately address safety concerns and ensure the proper procedure was followed in the future. And the U.S. Army suspended recruiting efforts while personnel nationwide were retrained after Greenblatt reported on illegal recruiting activity. Greenblatt started his on-air career in 1996 at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. He spent two years each at KOAA-TV in Colorado Springs, Colorado and WBBH-TV in Fort Myers, Florida before joining KHOU. A native of Denver, Greenblatt graduated from the University of Missouri's School of Journalism, where he was the student president of the journalism school. He co-founded the school's MUTV television station, which is still thriving today. Greenblatt has won the prestigious duPont and George Foster Peabody Awards for his investigative reporting, the Livingston Award, and the Investigative Reporters & Editors Medal. He is a seven-time Emmy winner and winner of multiple Edward R. Murrow Awards. In two out of the past three years, his reports have been named as a finalist for Harvard's Goldsmith Prize for investigative reporting.
