FILE - In this image provided by the U.S. Marine Corps, evacuees wait to board a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III during an evacuation at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, Monday, Aug. 30. 2021.

During America’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, journalists were among those escaping the Taliban.

The Voice of America documentary Journalists on the Run follows the harrowing flight of three Afghan journalists who eventually settle in the U.S. It’s part of a five-part series, Journalism: The Oxygen of Democracy, which runs monthly from Sept. 15 through Jan. 19, 2023 at the National Voice of American Museum of Broadcasting in West Chester.

On Cincinnati Edition we discuss journalists in conflict zones from Afghanistan to Ukraine.
