What journalist or communication personality do you most admire, and why?
Ted Conover, reporter/journalist, author. I believe Ted Conover’s work is some of the most important journalism of our time. His immersive approach yields rich historical research, complex and enlightened reportage. He’s not afraid to tell us how that as he writes the story, the story changes him. He often spends months and years undercover or on assignment.
