The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School is pleased to announce the appointment of their fall 2015 fellows.
“This fall’s fellows are exceptional for their experience and knowledge. Bob Schieffer is one of America’s most honored and respected journalists, while David Ensor, Marie Sanz, and Paul Wood are each deeply informed about international issues of keen interest to Kennedy School students and faculty. We’re excited to have the four of them with us in the months ahead,” said Professor Thomas E. Patterson, the center’s acting director.
Bob Schieffer has been a reporter for more than half a century and was a part of CBS News for 46 years. Schieffer anchored the Saturday edition of the “CBS Evening News” for 23 years, became the network’s chief Washington correspondent in 1982 and was named the anchor and moderator of “Face the Nation” in 1991.
David Ensor is the former director of Voice of America, the official external broadcast institution of the U.S. Government, which provides multimedia programming to international audiences.
Marie Sanz is currently the bureau chief of Agence France Presse (AFP) in Lima, Peru, covering also Chile and Bolivia. Over her 25-year career as a foreign correspondent for AFP, she has reported at length from Latin America, Africa, the United States and Europe.
Paul Wood is a BBC foreign correspondent, most recently based in Beirut. For the past four years he has covered the Syrian uprising, making a number of trips across the border from Lebanon and Turkey, often covert.
