Exit Interview

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM

Exit Interview


In his 13 years as head of ABC News, David Westin saw Clinton's impeachment, the contested 2000 election, 9/11, the Iraq War, and many more earth-shaking stories pass through his newsroom.

He also reflected on some personal questions as he tried to run a major news network while keeping an ethical backbone. Is it possible for journalists to be both good at their jobs and people of good moral character?

David Westin was the president of ABC News from 1997-2010. During his tenure, ABC News received 11 George Foster Peabody Awards and over 40 News and Documentary Emmys. Westin is currently the president and CEO of NewsRight, an online content-tracking and licensing company.

Speaker: David Westin
