One of the world’s most respected journalists, Christiane Amanpour transports us to the front lines, putting conflicts into context from the world’s most dangerous places.
Christiane Amanpour won worldwide acclaim for her reporting from some of the most dangerous places on the planet. Whether it was Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, Somalia, Rwanda or the Balkans, Amanpour was there, bringing conflicts into context and asking the tough questions. No stranger to conflict in the international arena, Amanpour was born in Iran but fled the country with her family. Her background and experience covering conflict make her an insightful commentator on global affairs as well as an expert interpreter of international headlines-and their effects and influence across cultures. No international network correspondent has reported as continuously from all of the world’s trouble spots as much as Amanpour and few have her record of awards and journalistic accomplishments. As global affairs anchor for ABC News in the United States and host of Amanpour on CNN International, Amanpour provides audiences with an in-depth look at global events and their impact both in the U.S. and around the world. In 2011, she was named to Forbes magazine’s list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.
