Early life and education
Forero was born in Bogotá to Colombian parents. The family moved to the U.S. at age five, and he was raised there. He received a B.S. in History and Journalism from Marshall University. He studied at Columbia University's graduate school of journalism in 1987-1988 and received a Master's in Journalism.
From 1999 to 2006 he wrote for The New York Times, and was previously a staff writer at the Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., Newsday, and the San Diego Union-Tribune. He has also covered other parts of Latin America.
Upon announcing that Forero had been awarded a Maria Moors Cabot Prize for 2012, the School of Journalism at Columbia University called Forero's coverage of Latin America a "reliable constant for those seeking to keep up with news about this interesting and volatile part of the world," saying that "Forero’s keen understanding of both [North and Latin American] cultures permeates his reporting for articles written for the Washington Post and his lively National Public Radio segments."
