Travel journalist to speak Tuesday

CBS News travel editor Peter Greenberg will share his experiences in a noon talk on Tuesday, October 9, in the La Follette School conference room. The talk is titled “A Country through the Lens of its Leader.”

Greenberg hosts the nationally syndicated "Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio" show, broadcast each week from a different remote location around the world. He travels more than 400,000 miles each year, and his reporting reaches millions of viewers and listeners. His work examines the logistics and trends of travel, and it advances a broader cultural and political understanding of places around the world.

With a communications degree from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Greenberg received the university’s Distinguished Service Award in Journalism among numerous honors, including being named one of the most influential people in travel by "Travel Weekly" alongside Bill Marriott and Richard Branson.
