Reporting From The Trenches

Hour 2:          What drives journalists to leave their families and risk their lives to tell the stories of war? NPR’s Kelly McEvers worked in the Middle East as the Arab uprisings surged, losing friends and colleagues to violence while her husband and daughter waited in Istanbul. She’s decided to come back and work for NPR in L.A. as a National Desk correspondent. McEvers looks deep into the nature that keeps foreign correspondents in dangerous situations and explores the intersection of ambition and fear in the radio documentary ‘Diary of a Bad Year: A War Correspondent’s Dilemma.’
