Emmy Award-winning journalist, executive producer & reporter for the PBS series We'll Meet Again
Award-winning journalist and photojournalist Ann Curry is the executive producer and reporter of We'll Meet Again, a PBS series that features reunions of people whose lives crossed, and then separated, at pivotal moments and during world-changing events. A former NBC News anchor and international correspondent, Ann has covered the wars in Syria, Darfur, Congo, the Central African Republic, Serbia, Lebanon, Israel, Afghanistan, and Iraq, as well as reported on nuclear tensions in North Korea and Iran. She has also reported humanitarian disasters, including the tsunamis in Japan and Southeast Asia, and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti during which her appeal via Twitter (@AnnCurry) is credited for helping to speed the arrival of humanitarian planes. During “An Evening with Ann Curry: Being a Tour de Force of Determination and Making a Difference in the World,” she will share stories, grounded in her experiences, that will invigorate and inspire.
