Kevin Sites @UWW 2/16

Journalist Kevin Sites will present a lecture “One Man. One Year. A World of Conflict” at 7 p.m. on Mon., Feb. 16th in the Irvin Young Auditorium as part of the Contemporary Issues Lecture Series.

Time magazine called Mr. Sites “the web’s best war correspondent.”  In November 2004, as an NBC News correspondent, he filmed and reported on the Iraqi war, including an incident where a U.S. Marine shot a wounded Iraqi insurgent in a Fallujah mosque. For that he was honored with the Payne Award for ethics in journalism.  As Yahoo!’s first news correspondent, he spent an entire year covering every major global conflict for the award-winning documentary “Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone”.  His website won a 2007 Webby for Best News/Documentary/Public Affairs site for coverage of the Israeli-Hezbollah War.

In The Hot Zone coverYour University Library has a copy of his book, In the hot zone: one man, one year, twenty wars (3rd-floor Main Collection, PN4874.S5177 A3 2007), which includes his DVD documentary “A World of Conflict.”
