Nina Totenberg: Journalists as Witnesses of History

In the third installment of Stephen Hess's blog series for "Whatever Happened to the Washington Reporters, 1978-2012," Nina Totenberg, National Public Radio's award-winning legal affairs correspondent, talks about how the 1960 presidential election drew her into a journalism career: "I realized I could be a witness to history." "Whatever Happened to the Washington Reporters" is Hess' latest book, in which he set out to find the 450 Washington reporters he first surveyed in 1978. He tracks them in France, England, Italy, Australia, and 19 U.S. states in addition to the Washington area, locating 90 percent and interviews 283 of them, producing the first comprehensive study of career patterns in American journalism.
