Full Bio

Bob Schieffer is broadcast journalism’s most experienced Washington reporter. He is CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent; serves as anchor and moderator of Face the Nation, the network’s Sunday public affairs broadcast; and is a regular contributor to CBS Evening News.

Schieffer has covered Washington for CBS News for more than 30 years and is one of the few broadcast or print journalists to have covered all four major beats in the nation’s capital: the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, and Capitol Hill. He has covered every presidential campaign and been a floor reporter at all of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions since 1972. He and his colleague, Dan Rather, stand as the only two 20-year anchors of a regularly scheduled network news broadcast.

Schieffer is a member of the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame and is the recipient of the Radio and Television News Directors Association’s 2003 Paul White Award, which recognizes an individual’s lifetime contribution to electronic journalism. Past CBS recipients include Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace, Dan Rather, and Charles Osgood.

Schieffer has won many other broadcast journalism awards, including seven Emmy Awards, one of which was for lifetime achievement, and two Sigma Delta Chi Awards. In 2002, he was chosen as Broadcaster of the Year by the National Press Foundation. He was also the 2004 recipient of the International Radio and Television Society Foundation Award and the American News Women’s Club Helen Thomas Award for excellence in journalism. In 2005, his alma mater, Texas Christian University, created the Schieffer School of Journalism in his honor. In 2008, he won the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association and was named a “living legend” by the Library of Congress.

Bob Schieffer is the author of Bob Schieffer’s America, Face the Nation: My Favorite Stories from the First 50 Years of the Award-Winning News Broadcast, as well as the 2003 New York Times bestseller, This Just In: What I Couldn’t Tell You on TV, and The Acting President.
