Lara Logan Born in South Africa on 29th March 1971, Lara Logan is the chief foreign correspondent for CBS and is well known for mostly reporting news from war torn areas such as Afghanistan and Baghdad. It is ideal to note that her roots in journalism lay in a South African television and radio station. Working for both radio and television, she graduated from the University of Natal in 1992 and is married to a defense contractor working with the U.S Federal Government and they have a son together. Her career is far from rosy since she has been placed at harms way in more than one instances and in all cases, she has ensured that she delivers her stories to her expectant audience. After the attacks that were carried out on September 11th 2001, Logan who did not have a visa to travel to Afghanistan found her way to get an expedited visa which enabled her to travel. During this time, she was working as a correspondent at GMTV which is a British program aired in the morning and using her own wit had managed to get into the American and Northern Alliance which at that time was fighting against the rebelling Taliban's. It was during this time that she managed to get an exclusive interview with General Babajan who was the commander for the Northern Alliance. This was one of the major stages that marked her advancement in her career. It was after this coverage that she spent four more years covering events of the war in Afghanistan. During this time, she was known as the journalist who traveled and worked with the American armed forces. Logan got into her current position on February 2006 and she is still one of the most active and versatile field journalist CBS has ever had. It was after this promotion that she covers a story about fighting in Haifa Street, Baghdad and once she delivered the same to CBS it could not be aired. In a bid to ensure that it was, she raised public awareness and got the support she needed to have it aired in her segment 60 minutes. It showcased Baghdad as a place under siege and raised awareness on real issues that had remained un-addressed for a long duration. Among some of the latest events she has covered was the March 2010 report from the heart of Afghanistan where she had gone with the US Navy seals.
