CBS News Plans Special on War in Afghanistan

As the U.S. approaches the eighth anniversary of the war in Afghanistan, CBS News is broadcasting three days of special reports. “AFGHANISTAN: The Road Ahead” is an in-depth examination of the war in Afghanistan. The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric will be reformatted, with more than half of the broadcasts on Oct. 5, 6 and 7 dedicated to the subject.

Says CBS News & Sports president Sean McManus, “CBS News will devote multiple resources to providing our audience with a clearer understanding of the challenges we face in Afghanistan and the consequences of the options that confront America.”

Couric will lead the expanded coverage with reporting and analysis from Afghanistan by CBS’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan, National Security Correspondent David Martin and Foreign Correspondent Terry McCarthy.

Related reporting also will be featured on “The Early Show,” CBS Radio News and CBSNews.com.
