An Evening with the Brothers K
For years, Marvin Kalb was chief diplomatic correspondent for CBS and later NBC News, topping an award-winning career as moderator of NBC’s Meet The Press before joining Harvard’s JFK School of Management as director of the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. The panels he moderates at the National Press Club - which take a critical look at the media - are regularly shown on C-SPAN. He is the author of a dozen books, including One Scandalous Story (about media coverage during the Clinton/Monica era) and The Media and The War on Terrorism.
Bernard Kalb was a foreign correspondent based in Southeast Asia for The New York Times and CBS News for many years. He also served as Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs and spokesman for the State Department under George Shultz. His resignation to protest government “disinformation” made front-page headlines. He was a media critic on CNN’s weekly program Reliable Sources for over a decade.
Together, the brothers have written two books: a bio of Henry Kissinger and The Last Ambassador (about the collapse of Saigon in 1975).
