Christiane Amanpour’s ‘Mission’

ABC News “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour gets interviewed by the Columbia Journalism Review.

Among other topics, she discusses her passion for international reporting, and whether the American audience, particularly the traditional Sunday morning audience, is interested in watching that.

The bottom line is this: I have a mission and my mission has been to bring, through all my work, a broader understanding of the world to U.S. viewers—first with my job at CNN and now at ABC with This Week

I’m not going to put the cart before the horse. I’m just going to say that I’m pleased with the way we have been received so far. I understand that this is a big challenge. I understand that it is somewhat counterintuitive. And therefore I understand how hard my team and I have to work. But I’m not trying to deliver something that’s foreign.
