The news and media networks are looking for go getters to get out in the field and perform top rate journalism. This can be difficult in some situations and there have been many journalists killed and even murdered in some countries around the world. Getting to know the people involved in the stories is the key to a successful tale which is why journalists have to have good people skills and plenty of charisma. Not only do you have to be good at your job but you also have to look good while you are doing it and it does not hurt anyone if the person you see on the screen is very good looking. Lara Logan has just about everything she needs going for her to be one of the top international correspondents getting right in behind the scene to find the heart of the story.
Lara has been a South African journalist and TV correspondent for some time now which means the she will not only have good experience but she also knows a lot about journalism. Working for CBS and the 60 Minutes program Lara has had to face some tough obstacles in her time including war and famine. At 40 years old this year you can tell that Lara Logan is still a go getting woman that does not take no for an answer which is why she is given the good stories to report on. Lara has been right up against bad guys like the Taliban as well as in the middle of fighting while she is trying to report. There is nothing that fazes her too much and she can hold her head up high for all the good work that she has done and will do.
While in Bagdad Lara was faced with a reporter’s worst nightmare while going out to investigate some gun fire. Getting caught in the action the camera man was able to take some very graphic pictures which in the end Lara decided that they were to horrific for broadcasting on TV. This was a difficult decision to make which could have cost her a career however sticking to her morals she made the right decision and was rewarded for this in the end. Getting right up there into the real action is why Lara Logan is so popular and most likely the reason that she will win several awards for her journalism talents.
