Adventures of a Young Reporter Covering Cold War Russia in Early Days of TV News
Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Public Event of Interest
Featuring CC@H member Marvin Kalb! Marvin Kalb’s recent book, Assignment Russia: Becoming a Foreign Correspondent in the Crucible of the Cold War , takes readers back to his first days as a journalist, and the first days of broadcast news. During a dark time when Cold War tensions were high between Eisenhower’s America and Khrushchev’s Soviet Union, Kalb was tasked with explaining Moscow to Washington and the American public. Assigned as Moscow correspondent of CBS News just as the U2 incident was unfolding, Kalb was an eyewitness to history-and as a writer and analyst helped shape the first draft of that history. Hosted by Northwest Neighbors Village.
