Portland State of Mind: PSU Weekend Keynote Speaker: Lara Logan of 60 Minutes

PSU Weekend keynote speaker: 60 Minutes' Lara Logan

Lara Logan’s bold reporting from war zones for more than two decades has earned her a prominent spot among the world’s best foreign correspondents. Driven by an insatiable desire to constantly improve and impact the world around us, Logan began her journalism career when she was a 17 year old school girl in South Africa. As a teenager compelled to expose the atrocities of the Apartheid regime in South Africa, Logan discovered her passion for seeking truth and justice in an increasingly connected globe.

Logan joined CBS in 2002 as a correspondent and a contributor to 60 Minutes II (2002-04). She has been CBS News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent since February 2006; she became a correspondent for 60 Minutes the same year. She reports regularly for the CBS Evening News and periodically appears on The Early Show and Face The Nation in addition to her 60 Minutes duties.

Her reporting has brought her face to face with the day’s most diverse, relevant and intriguing issues, from gripping interviews to her coverage of the war on terror.
