Journalist David Brody to speak at Northwest

Emmy Award-winning journalist David Brody will deliver the keynote address at the fifth annual Faith in the Humanities conference at Northwest University on Monday, January 31. His talk is titled, “Making Your Mark as a Christian Journalist in the Mainstream Media.”

Brody’s talk will be from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in Room 233 of the Donald H. Argue Health and Sciences Center on the Northwest University campus. Following his address, there will be time for a Question & Answer session. The public is welcome to attend, and the event is free of charge. 

A former White House correspondent, Brody is now the Chief Political Correspondent for CBN News. He has interviewed many prominent national figures during his nearly 25-year career. Brody covered the Obama White House from 2009-11. In 2008, he covered the United States presidential campaign. He is currently based in Washington, D.C., but travels around the country interviewing newsmakers, including potential candidates for President in 2012. He has made numerous appearances on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. He has also appeared on NBC's Meet the Press multiple times as well as PBS, NPR and C-SPAN.

Brody’s recent one-on-one interviews have crossed the ideological spectrum. They include Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Tim Kaine, Michael Steele, Harry Reid, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, and Mitt Romney. His political blog, The Brody File, has been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post. In addition, his Brody File TV Show is a one-of-a-kind news show focusing exclusively on the 2012 presidential race. Brody brings his viewers up close and personal, one-on-one interviews with today's top newsmakers.

Throughout the years, David has covered numerous important news events, including the 2008 Presidential debate, the Virginia Tech massacre, the 2006 midterm elections, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the 2004 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the Oklahoma City bombing, the story of oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the nation’s immigration crisis, and the 1996 Olympics.

David worked as News Director at ABC affiliate KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and has produced special projects, stories, and shows in the major markets of Washington, D.C., (WUSA-TV) and Denver (KUSA-TV). David also won an Emmy Award for producing the top newscast in Colorado Springs in 1989. He joined CBN News in 2003.

David was raised in New York City as a reformed Jew and had his Bar-Mitzvah at 13. He became a Christian in 1988 and has a compelling story about being a "Jewish Believer." Brody graduated with a B.S. in communications from Ithaca College in 1988. He is married with three children.
