Veteran broadcast and print journalist Daniel Schorr passed away today in Washington, D.C. at the age of 93. A tenacious and respected reporter, Schorr received three Emmy Awards for his coverage of Watergate and a place on Nixon’s enemies list as a result—“a greater tribute than the Emmys list,” Schorr said in 2009. He began his career at CBS, where he worked for 23 years; he then moved on to CNN and later to National Public Radio, where he remained for two decades as a senior news analyst and correspondent until the time of his death.
Schorr visited the Free Library in January 2008 with his book, Come to Think of It, a collection of essays reflecting on the most notable news stories of the past 50 years. Click here to listen to the podcast of his spirited and engaging author event.
