Veteran journalists and brothers Bernard and Marvin Kalb will take a highly personalized look at some of the most consequential, indelible stories of our time, to which they were eye-witnesses: the Cuban missile crisis, with Marvin broadcasting “live” from Moscow; Nixon in China in 1972, with Bernard on the ground; the
Vietnam war, as reported from Washington and Saigon; the Middle East Kissinger shuttles; the communist grip over Eastern Europe; and more--including the new administration's approach to these recurring problems in history and today.
Marvin Kalb spent 30 years as an award-winning reporter for CBS News and NBC News. He was the last newsman recruited by Edward R. Murrow to join CBS News, becoming part of the later generation of the "Murrow's Boys." At NBC, he served as chief Diplomatic Correspondent and host of Meet the Press. During many years of Kalb's tenures at CBS and NBC, his brother Bernard worked alongside him. Bernard covered international affairs for more than three decades at CBS News, NBC News, and The New York Times. The brothers traveled extensively with Henry Kissinger on diplomatic missions and later wrote a biography together entitled Kissinger. They have each written individually as well as co-authored several books.
