Description

The University of Judaism’s Department of Continuing Education presents this lecture as part of its 2007 Public Lecture Series. Prominent world leaders and media personalities gather at Gibson Amphitheatre to take you behind the scenes of history—sharing their perspectives on our world.

TV Journalist Anderson Hayes Cooper anchors Anderson Cooper 360° on CNN. In 1995, Cooper became a correspondent for ABC News, eventually rising to the position of co-anchor of World News Now. In 2000 he switched career paths, taking a job as the host of ABC’s reality show The Mole. However, he left The Mole after its second season to return to broadcast news in 2001 at CNN. He has a long history of reporting from foregin regions, and was recently in Sri Lanka to cover the tsunami and in Baghdad to cover the elections.

Walter Cronkite covered virtually every news event during more than 65 years in journalism, the last 54 with CBS News.  His accomplishments on and off the air won him acclaim and trust from colleagues and the American public alike.
