Lara Logan is the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News. She is a South African television and radio journalist and war correspondent.

Born/Birth

Lara Logan was born on March 29, 1971 in Durban, South Africa.

Childhood and School College

She attended high school at Durban Girls' College, and the University of Natal in Durban. She graduated in 1992 with a degree in commerce. She went on to receive a diploma in French language, culture and history at the Université de l'Alliance Française in Paris. She was a swimsuit model when she was in college.

Career and struggle

She got her start in broadcast journalism in Africa as a senior producer for Reuters Television. Logan began her career as a general news reporter for the Daily News and the Sunday Tribune, both located in Durban, South Africa.

Before 2002, Lara Logan covered wars and national turmoil in Zimbabwe, Kosovo, Angola, Mozambique, India, Gaza and the West Bank.

From 2002 to now, Logan has reported daily from Iraq and Afghan frontlines. She is often a troop imbed. Her coverage has been harrowing, controversially explicit and investigative in the years.

She has often aired her well-informed activist views about U.S. mismanagement of the conflicts, and related media underreporting, on CBS, CNN, and on late-night talk shows and The Daily Show.

She has been likened to a young Dan Rather or Mike Wallace, and is often described as courageous to the point of recklessness. She was the only U.S. network reporter in Baghdad when the city was invaded, and when Saddam's statue was toppled.

Lara Logan was providing live coverage in harrowing Cairo streets on February 11, 2011 when President Mubarak stepped down. She and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. In the crush of the mob of 200 people, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating. She was later saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.


Her recent standout reports include the first English language interview with the Danish spy who claimed he helped the U.S. target and kill Anwar Al Awlaki, the American-born Muslim cleric and wanted terrorist. Logan's access to the U.S. Immigration and Custom's Enforcement's takedown of the largest drug cartel in law enforcement history provided a fascinating look into international organized crime.
