Profile Bio Text
Steve Kroft (born August 22, 1945) is an American journalist and a longtime correspondent for 60 Minutes. His investigative reporting has garnered him much acclaim, including three Peabody Awards and nine Emmy awards, one of which was an Emmy for Lifetime Achievement. Born on August 22, 1945 in Kokomo, Indiana, Kroft attended Syracuse University, where he earned his bachelor`s degree in 1967. After his graduation, he was drafted into the United States Army and served in the Vietnam War.[2] He was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division in Cu Chi, where he was a reporter for the Armed Forces Network; he covered the Division`s participation in the invasion of Cambodia. Kroft won several Army journalism awards for his work and a Bronze Star for Meritorius Achievement. When the Division was redeployed, he was reassigned to the military newspaper Stars and Stripes as a correspondent and photographer. Kroft joined CBS News in 1980 as a reporter in its Northeast bureau, based out of New York City. That September, Kroft and Meredith Viera, a West 57th colleague, joined 60 Minutes. In 1990, he became the first American journalist to be given extensive access to the contaminated grounds of the Chernobyl nuclear facility, and his story won an Emmy. After allegations of infidelity surfaced in the 1992 presidential election, then-Governor Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, gave an exclusive interview to Kroft. The interview was one of the defining moments in the election. Kroft continued to file groundbreaking reports for 60 Minutes. A 1992 segment which detailed a friendly fire incident in the Gulf War won him his first Peabody Award. Two of Kroft`s stories in 1994, a profile of Senator Bob Dole and an exposé on the Cuban government`s quarantine policy for people infected with AIDS, won Emmy awards. In 2003, he and the rest of the 60 Minutes team were awarded Emmys for lifetime achievement. Kroft`s interview style is highly respected by Barack Obama, who has accordingly given Kroft a high degree of access. In 2008 Obama granted Kroft, who had interviewed him on five prior occasions, his first interview after being elected President of the United States. He appeared as himself on an episode of Murphy Brown. He played himself again in Woody Allen`s 2000 movie, Small Time Crooks, in which he interviewed Allen`s character for a segment on 60 Minutes. Kroft lives in New York with his wife, Jennet Conant, who is a journalist and author. They have one son, John Conant Kroft.
