    Default Is abou? the writing style

    "One of the authores and producers, made his name with The Financial Times and currently works as a special correspondent in Afghanistan."

    Isn't it logical to put " is currently working"?

    '...authors' is spelt wrong and there should be no comma in the sentence.

    Both 'currently works' and 'is currently working' are grammatically correct.
