See if you can guess who this Ace Reporter is from this description of his work:

Ace has played a significant role in our network's coverage of the war on terror and homeland security issues. He was responsible for much of our coverage of the September 11 terrorist attacks, with breaking investigative stories that focused on the terrorists and operations of the Al-Qaeda network. Ace exposed how a group with links to Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda tried to buy stinger missiles and other deadly weapons, including components for nuclear devices from American citizens. He also worked on the exclusive report detailing how terrorists attempted a similar attack in France in 1994. Ace was also largely responsible for our continuing coverage of the Columbine massacre and the TWA Flight 800 disaster as well as the Oklahoma City tragedy.

Ace's hidden camera series on the lack of security at airports prompted an investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and immediate nationwide policy change. In addition, his report on an aviation security device used in Europe, but not in the United States, spurred a public debate on the merits of better, if more expensive, safety equipment. Ace's exclusive reports include an interview with a pilot who blew the whistle on his company and initiated a federal investigation into the airline's maintenance practices.

Ace traveled to China to report in a year-long hidden camera investigation into the counterfeit prescription drug trade. The Emmy-winning report documented how easy it is for counterfeit medicines to wind up at local pharmacies in the United States. He has received two Emmy Awards for his 2004 report on child sex trafficking in Cambodia for which he went undercover in a dramatic mission to rescue some of the children. Ace has received eight Emmys for investigative reporting, outstanding coverage of a news story and outstanding coverage of breaking news, four Edward R. Murrow awards for his news series investigating aviation security and safety as well as his coverage of the Ford/Firestone case, and three Clarion awards for his coverage of Indian child slave labor, aviation security and the Unabomber case.

And the answer is...

Chris Hansen.
