Biography

A CBS news correspondent and investigative reporter since 1984, New York-born broadcast journalist Richard Schlesinger has received nine Emmy Awards in the course of his career. After graduating with a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri in 1976, he became a political reporter with WPLG-TV in Miami, where his work earned him a Sigma Delta Chi Award for excellence from the Society of Professional Journalists. After a stint in Washington working as a bureau chief for Post-Newsweek Television Stations, Schlesinger returned to Miami to begin his work as a correspondent, investigative reporter and occasional anchor for CBS. He is best-known to American audiences for his work on the investigative series "48 Hours Mystery", for which he has probed issues such as divorce, the death penalty, the economic recession and miscarriages of justice. He won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award for excellence in broadcast journalism for his work on the 1997 documentary "CBS Reports: Enter the Jury Room", which made American television history by taking cameras into jury deliberations for the first time. Schlesinger has also served as narrator on a number of "Biography" programmes for the Arts and Entertainment channel, covering subjects including Bill Clinton and John F. Kennedy.
