About Anne Garrels - Anne Garrels was a long-time foreign correspondent for National Public Radio in the United States.

Garrels graduated from Harvard University’s Radcliffe College in 1972. She subsequently worked at ABC in several positions for about ten years, including serving as Moscow bureau chief and correspondent until she was expelled in 1982, and as Central American bureau chief from 1984 to 1985. Garrels was the NBC News correspondent at the U.S. State Department. She joined NPR in 1988 and reported on conflicts in Chechnya, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel and the West Bank. Garrels was the Edward R. Murrow Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations at the Council on Foreign Relations in 1996, and is a member of the board of the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Garrels was one of the 16 Western journalists who remained in Baghdad and reported live during the 2003 Iraq War. Shortly after her return from Iraq, she published Naked in Baghdad, a memoir of her time covering the events surrounding the invasion. She subsequently returned to Iraq several times for NPR. She was an embedded reporter with the U.S. Marines during the November 2004 attack on Fallujah. Garrels also covered the January 2005 Iraqi national elections for an interim government, as well as constitutional referendum and the December 2005 elections for the first full term Iraqi government. As sectarian violence swept much of central Iraq Garrels continued to report from Baghdad, Najaf and Basra.

Garrels has won nearly every major broadcasting award including the George Polk Award for her work in Iraq, the 2004 Edward R. Murrow Award, the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women’s Media Foundation, and the Los Angeles Press Club’s Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism.

 

About Neal Conan  Neal was for eleven years the host of Talk of the Nation, the national news-talk call-in show from NPR. He brought three decades of news and radio experience to the show, which reached nearly three million listeners a week on more than 300 NPR member stations. After all those years in broadcasting, Neal says he “finally gets to play with a really cool band.”

A familiar voice on NPR for the past quarter century, Conan worked as a reporter based in New York, Washington, and London (serving as NPR’s Bureau Chief in both New York and London). He anchored NPR live coverage of national political conventions, inaugurations, and an impeachment. For five years, he hosted Weekly Edition: The Best of NPR News. Following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Conan played a major role anchoring NPR’s continuous live coverage, a part he reprised during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2004, in Des Moines, Iowa, he hosted the first radio-only presidential candidates’ debate since 1948.

On the other side of the microphone, Conan has served as editor, producer, and executive producer of NPR’s flagship evening news magazine, All Things Considered and, at various times, acted as NPR’s foreign editor, managing editor, and news director.

Neal Conan’s awards include a Major Armstrong award for his coverage of the Iran-Iraq War, a prestigious Alfred I. duPont/Columbia University award as part of NPR’s coverage of the Gulf War, another duPont and a George Foster Peabody Award for his part in NPR’s Coverage of Sept. 11, and yet another duPont for NPR’s coverage of the war in Iraq. During his time at All Things Considered, the program won numerous awards, including the Washington Journalism Review’s Best in the Business award.
