2018-2019 Florida Forum Series to Welcome Distinguished Journalist Lara Logan on Oct. 17

September 13th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

            The Florida Forum Speaker Series, produced by The Women’s Board of Wolfson Children’s Hospital, will welcome veteran journalist Lara Logan on Oct. 17, 2018. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Jacksonville.

Logan, an award-winning reporter and journalist, has earned prominence among the world’s best foreign correspondents. Named a CBS News Chief Foreign Correspondent in 2006 and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent in 2008, Logan has made notable contributions to the 60 Minutes news segment such as her profile of Medal of Honor winner Salvatore Giunta, an interview with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and many reports from Afghanistan highlighting the War on Terror. In 2010, Logan’s report from the Afghan battlefield, “A Relentless Enemy” earned her electronic journalism’s highest award, a DuPont – Columbia University Silver Baton. In 2011, while reporting on the revolution in Tahrir Square in Egypt, Logan was mobbed, beaten and sexually assaulted. She later broke her silence about the brutal attack to draw attention to the plight of men and women in war zones, and the difficulty female journalists covering war zones encounter. Throughout her career, Logan has received numerous awards and recognitions for her skilled and in-depth journalism. [Read more →]
