David Westin - Exit Interview
President and CEO, NewsRight; President, ABC News (1997 – 2010)

Thu, 25 Oct, 2012 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

David WestinThe death of Princess Diana, the impeachment of President Clinton, the terrorist attacks of September 11. These were among the many perplexing historical events that shaped former ABC News President David Westin’s leadership at the network. From 1997 to 2010, he worked behind the cameras, guiding the news team’s coverage of these major events. Now those behind the scenes experiences can be read in his book Exit Interview. In the book, Westin presents his views of the bigger stories that broke while he was in charge and provides his perspective on the broadcast journalism’s challenges today. As Westin notes, reporters need to treat every story objectively and avoid the temptation “to cut back on the reporting and seek an audience through the expression of opinion.” We invite you to join us for an enlightening evening with a media icon as part of our fall series “Meet the Media.”

Westin received his bachelor’s with honors and distinction from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, along with a JD degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Michigan Law School in 1977. After graduation, he served as a law clerk to J. Edward Lumbard of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and later clerked Lewis F. Powell of the Supreme Court of the United States. Westin is currently an Advisor to NewsRight, where he served as president and CEO from 2011 to 2012.
