Eight Annual Edward R. Murrow Forum on Issues in Journalism: Christiane Amanpour

Tufts has organized a Edward R. Murrow Forum since 2006. The guest of this year's forum on “International Reporting in the 21st Century: Coverage, Context and Courage” was Christiane Amanpour, Chief International Correspondent, CNN Global Affairs Editor, ABC News. While Johnathan Tisch talked with Christiane Amanpour about her upbringing in Iran as well as her personal and journalistic experiences since then, questions from the audience elicited discussion of such issues as the professional coverage of emotionally draining events or e.g the importance of the camera crew in creating news.

If you missed the event, you can watch her interview, the first live broadcast of a Murrow Forum, on Made in Medford or read an article about Amanpour in Tufts Now.
