Watch: TIME Names ‘Ebola Fighters’ Its 2014 ‘Person of the Year’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Time magazine editor Nancy Gibbs announced her magazine’s 2014 “Person of the Year,” the “Ebola fighters,” and what led to that ultimate choice.

“This was the worst outbreak in history,” Gibbs said. “And while officials were in denial and very slow to respond, these men and women did the hard and dangerous work of treating patients and protecting the rest of us. It’s an exceptionally great amount of courage and kindness and bravery that’s required for them to do what they did.”

The “Ebola Fighters” beat out Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ferguson protesters, Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani, and Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba. They will be featured on five different covers of this week’s edition of the long-running news magazine.
