Christiane Amanpour


Christiane AmanpourRecognized and respected around the world for her achievements as an international reporter, Christiane Amanpour has had the courage and skill to bring the world the news from multiple war zones, natural disasters, and historical events in the past two decades. Born in London in 1958, but raised in Tehran, Amanpour had the benefit of experiencing an international perspective from a young age. For college, the aspiring journalist moved to the United States to attend University of Rhode Island, during which time she earned an internship at a local news station in Providence, where she began to hone her skills. Upon graduation, the talented young Amanpour was offered a position with CNN as an assistant on foreign news and affairs. With CNN, which was a new station at the time, Amanpour grew to international recognition for her reporting in Germany, Kuwait, and, most famously, Bosnia. Her candor in reporting the tragedy, terror, and impact of such events changed the way international reporting is done, and made Amanpour one of the most famous women, and sought-after journalists, of our time. Her exclusive interviews with some of the world's most powerful leaders, including presidents of multiple countries in the Middle East and Africa, have offered an international audience the opportunity to understand the politics, conflicts, and cultures of the different peoples on every continent. Her journalistic style has earned Amanpour nine Emmy Awards, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire, among other prestigious distinctions. As a woman, a reporter, and a citizen of the world, Christiane Amanpour's contributions to journalism and to the candid coverage of international news for the past two decades remain virtually unmatched.


"There are some situations one simply cannot be neutral about, because when you are neutral you are an accomplice. Objectivity doesn't mean treating all sides equally. It means giving each side a hearing."
