HU Scripps Howard J School Welcomes National News Anchor Bernard Shaw
The Hampton University Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications welcomes national
news anchor Bernard Shaw during the live taping of The Caldwell Café on Thursday, November 13 at
6:15pm in the Scripps Howard television studio on campus.
Shaw has a career spanning over 40 years in ground breaking coverage around the world. He has worked as a
correspondent for CBS News and ABC News where he provided coverage of the White House, moderated U.S. presidential
debates, and interviewed the world’s most influential leaders, from
Fidel Castro to Saddam Hussein.
Among the many firsts for this trailblazing icon, Shaw was the inaugural anchor on the Cable News Network
(CNN) when it debuted in 1980. He provided riveting live coverage from Baghdad during the Gulf War in 1991
and spent 30 hours on location in Beijing during 1989 Tiananmen Square protests.
The Caldwell Cafe series is named after Earl Caldwell, a nationally renowned journalist, who is a
writer-in-residence with the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications. The series was
designed as a vehicle for Caldwell to expose students to media and journalism professionals.
The event is free and open to the public. If you have any questions, please free to call 757.728.6003.
