Christiane Amanpour (born January 12, 1958) is chief international correspondent for CNN. Based out of CNN's London bureau, Amanpour is one of the most recognized and highly distinguished international correspondents on American television.

Her family had to flee Iran after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Christiane moved to the United States to study journalism at the University of Rhode Island. After graduation, she worked for NBC affiliate WJAR in Providence, Rhode Island.In 1983, she was hired by CNN. In 1989, she was posted to Frankfurt, West Germany, where she reported on the democratic revolutions sweeping Eastern Europe at the time. However, it was her coverage of the Persian Gulf War that followed Iraq's occupation of Kuwait in 1990 that made her famous. Thereafter, she reported from the Bosnian war and many other conflict zones. From 1996-2005, she contracted with CBS to file four to five in-depth, international news reports a year as a special contributor on that network's newsmagazine program, 60 Minutes.In 1998 she married James Rubin, who at the time was spokesman for the US State Department.

Each and everything that happens, even if it was not what you hoped would happen, is a valuable, life-learning tool. And you will only achieve success if you know how to learn from your failures and mistakes. It’s vital.More Christiane Amanpour quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
