Daniel Schorr— longtime CBS & NPR news correspondent— has died at age 93

Daniel Schorr was a newsman for CBS from the 1950s to the 1970s, and famously found himself on live TV reading— to his surprise— his own name on President Nixon’s “enemies list” while reporting during the Watergate era.  Schorr was among the initial hires at CNN and was a Senior News Analyst at NPR in his later career.

Daniel Schorr was interviewed by the Archive of American Television on May 22, 2001.
