QUICKLET ON THE CHARLIE ROSE SHOW: ANTHONY BOURDAIN
- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK Charlie Rose has been a leading voice in journalism since the 1970's. He has worked for several prestigious broadcasting companies such as the BBC and PBS, but is best known for being the anchorman on shows such as CBS News Nightwatch, and as a correspondent on 60 Minutes. He is also particularly known for his calm, even demeanor, which has allowed him to become one of the best known interviewers on television. It seems that Rose has always had an interest in interviewing as a journalistic style. Perhaps his most famous interview, and the one that may have paved the way for his current show, was his 1987 interview of Charles Manson, for which he won an Emmy award. On his current show, simply called The Charlie Rose Show, he regularly interviews a wide variety of public figures; from politicians to movie stars. The focus of the show has remained intellectual and conversational, despite the current trend of inflammatory hosts and sensationalism in the media today.
