Kors earned national attention this year for his work uncovering the veterans' benefits scandal. His three-part series showed how military doctors are purposely misdiagnosing soldiers wounded in Iraq, labeling them mentally ill in order to deny them medical care and disability pay.

In his spare time, he writes for a kids' science magazine, Current Science, and studies ballroom dancing.
