Christiane Amanpour has been with CNN almost as long as the network has existed. She's covered the Gulf War, Bosnian War and Arab Spring. Amanpour moved to Atlanta in 1983 when she was hired by CNN as an entry-level desk assistant. She worked her way up to become chief international anchor for the international network.
Amanpour was recently in Atlanta to accept her award in the Atlanta Press Club Hall of Fame. "On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott met up with Amanpour before the ceremony and asked her about career as an international journalist.
The veteran journalist is currently host of CNN International's news show "Armanpour." It airs weeknights at 11 on GPB TV and other PBS stations as "Amanpour and Company."
