I love doing Here & There, because it allows me to use everything I’ve learned in more than 50 years as a working journalist.
I began on radio in 1959 at WMS/WCFM at Williams College and WMNB in nearby North Adams, Massachusetts. My first big international assignment was for CBS Radio News covering the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972. My live reporting on the terrorist attack there won the Overseas Press Club Award.
I like to claim I have the most varied (if least cumulative) resume in broadcast news, having covered local, national and world news, sports, arts, and science, for ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Al Jazeera English and ESPN. I have been a reporter, an anchor, an analyst and a play-by-play man. I have also been published in the NY Times, The Columbia Journalism Review, The Washington Monthly and Ms. Magazine. Before launching HERE & THERE I worked as a Special Correspondent covering Eastern Europe and Asia for PBS WorldFocus in 2009, and as chief Washington anchor for Al Jazeera English from 2006 to 2008. I have also served as substitute color man/analyst of New Orleans Zephyrs baseball for WMTI, New Orleans.
Prior to that, I was blessed to have spent spent 16 years as a correspondent for ABC News’ Nightline with Ted Koppel, covering wars in the Balkans, the Middle East and Rwanda, and disasters from the tsunami in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand, to Hurricane Andrew in the United States. I also did considerable investigative reporting for Nightline on the spread of toxic asbestos from the W.R. Grace Co. mine at Libby, MT, and on General Motors’ failed Minority Dealership Program.
Before reporting for Nightline, I spent more than a decade in local news in New York and Washington, D.C. Over the course of my career, I have won 11 Emmy Awards, a DuPont Award and a Global Health Award, among others.
I live in Tijeras, NM, in the beautiful foothills of the Sandia Range of the southern Rockies with my wife Amy, who creates the graphics for our shows, and whose title of Assistant for Production and Research doesn’t begin to describe her vital role on HERE & THERE. We are accompanied as much as possible by a small dog named Louie.
