The World and Washington

NBC Radio, Elie Abel

Elie Abel’s The World and Washington is a new and distinctive in-depth analysis of current world events. This series of news interpretation programs not only gives Mr. Abel a chance to articulate his views, but also serves as a sounding board for all NBC News Staff correspondents in areas of the world where news is breaking. Mr. Abel’s background for hosting this series is indeed rich and includes NBC Bureau Chief, London, and the coverage of the Nuremberg Trials, the Geneva summit conference of 1955, the Kennedy-Nixon campaign of 1960, the Goldwater-Johnson campaign of 1964, innumerable NATO conferences, and the funerals of Sir Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, and Knorad Adenauer. In recognition, a Peabody Award for radio news.
