Tony Kahn's Journal

After “Blacklisted” aired in 1997, I anchored a national daily news program called “The World”.

Produced by the BBC world service and distributed by PRI, “The World” covered international developments for the American audience. 

For me, "The World" was also an opportunity to get behind the headlines and in a regular segment called “Tony Kahn’s Journal” tell stories that would help listeners understand the impact of the news on individuals like themselves, from Haiti to Moscow and Mexico to Vietnam.
