Roger Mudd

Biography:Roger Mudd (born February 9, 1928 in Washington) is an Emmy Award-winning U.S. television journalist.

A former congressional and national affairs correspondent for the CBS Evening News, Mudd was a candidate in 1981 to succeed Walter Cronkite as anchor of the CBS Evening News. The position was given instead to Dan Rather and Mudd accepted an offer to co-anchor the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, which he did from 1982 until 1983. From 1984 to 1985, he was co-anchor of NBC's Meet the Press with Marvin Kalb. From 1987 to 1992, he was an essayist and political correspondent with the MacNeil-Lehrer Newshour on PBS. He was a visiting professor at Princeton University and Washington and Lee University between 1992 and 1996. Mudd retired in 2004 after ten years with The History Channel.

Mudd received a B.A. degree from Washington and Lee University in 1950; and a Master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1951. He began his journalist career in Richmond, Virginia as a reporter for the Richmond News Leader and for radio station WRNL.

Mudd is the recipient of George Foster Peabody Award, the Joan Shorenstein Award for Distinguished Washington Reporting and five Emmy Awards.

Mudd is an indirect, distant relative of Dr. Samuel Mudd, the doctor who was implicated with inadvertently aiding John Wilkes Booth shortly after he assassinated U.S president Lincoln. Many accounts have muddled the facts, assuming incorrectly that he is a direct descendant.
