Profile Bio Text
Wolf Blitzer is an American journalist who has been a CNN reporter since 1990. Blitzer is currently the host of the newscast The Situation Room and the Sunday talk show Late Edition. Blitzer previously hosted Wolf Blitzer Reports, which was replaced by The Situation Room. Wolf Blitzer, who has the same first and last name as his maternal grandfather, grew up in Buffalo, New York, the son of Jewish refugees from Poland. Blitzer graduated from Kenmore West Senior High School and received a B.A. degree in history from the University of Buffalo in 1970. While there, he was a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi. In 1972, he received an M.A. degree in international relations from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. As revealed on August 28, 2008 during the CNN broadcast from the floor of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, Blitzer was, during his youth, a keyboard player in a band that performed cover songs such as "Louie Louie." His band`s name, "The Monkeys", apparently preceded the more famous made-for-TV band of the later 60s. Blitzer began his career in journalism in the early 1970s in the Tel Aviv bureau of the Reuters news agency. In 1973 he caught the eye of Jerusalem Post editor Ari Rath, who hired Blitzer as a Washington correspondent for the English language Israeli newspaper. Blitzer would remain with the Post until 1990, covering both American politics and developments in the Middle East. During his tenure with the Post, Blitzer interviewed several American Presidents and Secretaries of State and broke news from Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan. At the time, he was perhaps best known for his coverage of the arrest and trial of Jonathan Pollard, an Israeli spy in American naval intelligence. Blitzer was the first journalist to interview Pollard, and he would later write a book about the Pollard Affair titled Territory of Lies. Sometime in the mid-1970s, Blitzer also worked for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as the editor of their monthly in house publication, the Near East Report. While at AIPAC, Blitzer`s journalism focused on Middle East affairs as it relates to United States foreign policy. In the mid 1970s, Blitzer also lobbied on behalf of AIPAC to better Israel`s foreign interests. At an April 1977 White House press conference, Blitzer asked Egyptian leader Anwar Sadat why Egyptian scholars, athletes and journalists were not permitted to visit Israel. Sadat, somewhat taken aback, responded that such visits would be possible after an end to the state of belligerence between the two nations. This was the first time Sadat said that peace between Israel and Egypt was possible. In November of that year, Sadat made a historic visit to Israel, and Blitzer covered the negotiations between the two countries from the first joint Israeli-Egyptian press conference in 1977 to the final negotiations that would lead to the signing of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty two years later. In May 1990, Blitzer moved to CNN and worked as the cable network`s military affairs reporter. Blitzer spent a month in Moscow in 1991, and was one of the first Western reporters to visit KGB headquarters. His team`s coverage of the first Gulf War in Kuwait won a CableACE Award and made him a household name. In 1992 Blitzer became CNN`s White House correspondent, a position he would hold until 1999. During this period, he earned an Emmy Award for his coverage of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. In 1998, he began hosting the CNN Sunday morning interview program Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, which is seen in over 180 countries. Blitzer`s first assignment as an anchor was on the daily newscast The World Today, in 1999. In 2000, he started anchoring his own show, Wolf Blitzer Reports. CNN selected Blitzer to anchor their coverage of the 2004 presidential election. Since August 8, 2005, Blitzer has hosted The Situation Room, a three-hour afternoon/early evening newscast on CNN.
