Edward R. Murrow (1908-1965) virtually invented modern radio and television journalism. He served, in turn, as CBS's European director, war correspondent, vice president and director of public affairs, news analyst, producer and broadcaster of the groundbreaking "See It Now" and "Person to Person" television programs, and director of the U.S. Information Agency. His name has become synonymous for quality, courage, and integrity in broadcast journalism. Whether reporting from the rooftops of London during the blitz and at the gates of Buchenwald by war's end or exposing Senator Joseph McCarthy on "See It Now," Murrow's broadcasts (the best of which have been collected in "In Search of Light," also available from Da Capo Press) shaped the way the American public saw the world. Edward R. Murrow reveals the exciting events behind his provocative reporting while letting readers witness the inner life of a legendary journalist. Like its subject, this biography sets the standard.
