NPC Member Leone Lakhani Discusses Conflict Zones, Natural Disasters And Press Freedom Overseas

The death of Osama Bin Laden, the Israeli-Lebanon war, political uprisings in Pakistan and the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan are just some of the major international stories Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Leone Lakhani has covered during her career as a network senior producer and correspondent. In this edition of Update-1, she talks with fellow committee member Mike Hempen about reporting from conflict zones, covering natural disasters, the biggest threats she has faced and press freedom in the Middle East and Europe. Leone also discusses the early stages of her career, and why with aspirations of a career in print journalism, she made the decision to do the unthinkable and go into broadcasting.
