Lara Logan's bold, award-winning reporting has earned her a reputation as one of the world's best foreign correspondents. She was named a full-time 60 Minutes correspondent in May 2012. In 2018, she concluded her 13-year tenure with the newsmagazine.
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 to 60 Minutes II since 2001. During her time with the network, she covered some of the biggest stories of our time, including the Iraq War, the Ebola crisis, and the rise of ISIS.
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’s Woman of the Year Award and five American Women in Radio and Television Gracie Awards, to name a few.
