About Lara Logan:

Lara Logan’s bold, award-winning reporting has earned her a prominent spot among the world’s best foreign correspondents. Named a full-time 60 Minutes correspondent in May 2012, the 2016-17 season is her 12th at the news magazine.

Logan was named CBS News Chief Foreign Correspondent in February 2006 and Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent in 2008, all while contributing to 60 Minutes beginning in 2005, and 60 Minutes II from 2001. Recent reports for 60 Minutes include the operation to take back Mosul from ISIS, a story on little-known victims of the Holocaust of WWII and another that reported on the similarities between ISIS genocide tactics’ and those of Hitler’s Final Solution. Her work has taken her from the front lines of the Ebola crisis to the forests of central Africa where she did a story on veterinarians treating endangered mountain gorillas in the wild, to Hollywood where she recently profiled one of rock 'n roll's most prolific photographers.

She obtained a rare interview with Jack Ma, founder of the giant Chinese Internet company Alibaba, took viewers inside the unique advertising campaign that helped bring an end to Colombia's violent insurgency, and took the audience on an inspiring journey with the story of severely wounded veterans climbing some of the world’s tallest peaks.

In February 2011, Logan was almost killed in Tahrir Square in Egypt during the revolution there. She was sexually assaulted and beaten by a mob of some 300 men while reporting a story for 60 Minutes on the Egyptian Revolution. She broke her silence about the brutal attack on 60 Minutes to draw attention to the plight of men and women, as well as female journalists covering war zones.

Logan has received multiple Emmy Awards, several Murrow awards, an Overseas Press Club Award, the Daniel Pearl Award, Glamour Woman of the Year and five American Women in Radio and Television Gracie Awards, to name a few. In 2008 for Outstanding Feature-Hard News for the Iraqi orphans story; in 2004 for Individual Achievement for Best Reporter/Correspondent; in 2003 for Best News Story for her CBS Evening News report on the attempted assassination of Afghan President Hamid Karzai; in 2002 for Best News Story for her CBS News Radio coverage of the war in Afghanistan; and in 2000 for Best News Story for her CBS News Radio coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She received the David Bloom Award in 2008 from the Radio & Television Correspondents Association for excellence in enterprise reporting and the 2007 Association of International Broadcasters’ Best International News Story Award for her report on the Taliban.
