Lara Logan

My very early decisions always were, “How can I empower myself to be in the strongest possible position as a journalist in order to make and build a career and do what I love?”

Lara Logan is chief foreign affairs correspondent at CBS News and a correspondent for 60 Minutes.

Her reporting from war zones has earned her a prominent spot among the world’s best foreign correspondents.

She was the only journalist from an American network in Baghdad when the U.S. military invaded the city, reporting live from Firdos Square as the statue of Saddam fell.

Her reports have included a series on U.S. Marines on patrol in Afghanistan, an up-close look at combat in Afghanistan; and reports from the front lines of Afghanistan and with the Green Berets searching for al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.
