In addition to reporting for the Detroit FOX owned station, LeDuff will lead a series of national news reports on all FOX owned stations called “The Americans with Charlie LeDuff.”
“Charlie’s unorthodox storytelling, no holds barred attitude and exceptional wit combine to produce a news product that is unlike any other reporting out there,” Sharri Berg, SVP of news operations for FOX TV stations said in a statement.
“What does being an American mean?” said LeDuff. “That’s what we’re doing out there with our cameras, asking: Who are we? Where are we going? We are hitting the road…the blue highways, the cul de sacs, and the corridors of power…. in search of ‘America’ and ourselves.”
LeDuff was a reporter for The New York Times from 1995 until 2007. He is the author of “US Guys: The True and Twisted Mind of the American Man,” “Work and Other Sins,” and “Detroit: An American Autopsy.”
