Join us for a discussion with Guy Raz '96, weekend host of NPR's All Things Considered, on the public media's expanding role in the fast-changing media landscape.
Guy Raz '96 first joined NPR in 1997 as an intern for All Things Considered. In 2000, he became NPR's Berlin bureau chief and was later transferred to London to become bureau chief there. He left NPR in 2004 to work as CNN's Jerusalem correspondent, chronicling everything from the rise of Hamas as a political power to the incapacitation of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Israel's 2005 withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. He returned to NPR in 2006 to serve as defense correspondent where he covered the Pentagon and the US military. In July 2009, he was named weekend host of All Things Considered.
During his six years abroad, Raz reported from more than 40 countries, with a focus on Iraq, Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Afghanistan, Eastern Europe and the Balkans. He profiled and interviewed dozens of world leaders, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Shimon Peres, General David Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen.
For his reporting from Iraq, Raz was awarded both the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Daniel Schorr Journalism prize. His reporting has contributed to two duPont Awards and one Peabody awarded to NPR. He has been a finalist for the Livingston Award four times. For his reporting from Germany, Raz was awarded both the RIAS Berlin prize and the Arthur F. Burns Award.
