Biography

During his 25 years in broadcasting, Bill Moyers has pursued a broad spectrum of journalism. In presenting him with the prestigious Gold Baton, the highest honor of the Alfred I. DuPont Columbia University Award, Columbia University President Michael Sovern has called him a unique voice, still seeking new frontiers in television, daring to assume that viewing audiences are willing to think and learn.

A survey of television critics by Television Quarterly,the official journal of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, placed Mr. Moyers among the 10 journalists who have had the most significant influence on television news. The Academy has also recognized his work with more than 30 Emmy Awards for excellence. He was elected to the television Hall of Fame in 1995 and a year later received the Charles Frankel Prize (now the National Humanities Medal) from the National Endowment for the Humanities "for outstanding contributions to American cultural life."

In 1986, Bill Moyers formed Public Affairs Television, Inc., with his wife and partner, Judith Davidson Moyers. This independent production company has produced almost 300 hours of programming, including such series as On Our Own Terms: Moyers on Dying; Moyers on Addiction: Close to Home; Genesis: A Living Conversation; Healing and the Mind; Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth; What Can We Do About Violence?; and The Wisdom of Faith with Huston Smith.

Prior to establishing Public Affairs Television, he was executive editor of the Bill Moyers' Journal on public television, senior news analyst for the CBS Evening News, and chief correspondent for the acclaimed documentary series, CBS Reports. Two of his public television series, Creativity (1982) and A Walk Through the 20th Century (1984) were named the outstanding information series by the Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Following his 1971 best-selling book, Listening to America, four books by Mr. Moyers based on his television series have also become bestsellers: Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, A World of Ideas I and II, and Healing and the Mind.

Before entering broadcasting, Bill Moyers served as Deputy Director of the Peace Corps in the Kennedy Administration and was Special Assistant to President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1963-1967, including two years as White House press secretary. He left the White House in January 1967, to become the publisher of Newsday.For 12 years he was a Trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation and now serves as President of The Florence and John Schumann Foundation.

Born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas, Moyers began his varied career at age 16 as a cub reporter on the Marshall News Register. He is currently president of the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy and lives in New York City.
