Former CNN correspondent to speak on North Korean nuclear crisis Dec. 4

Mike Chinoy, Edgerton Fellow on Korean Security at the Pacific Council on International Policy in Los Angeles, will speak at an Asian Studies Lecture Thursday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m. in the David M. Kennedy Center conference room, 258 Herald R. Clark Building.

A foreign correspondent for CNN for 24 years, Chinoy will speak on his latest book, “Meltdown: The Inside Story of the North Korean Nuclear Crisis” (2008), which was hailed by The Washington Post as a “tour de force of reporting.”

During a 30-year career in broadcast journalism, he worked in London, Beijing and Hong Kong, among other locations. His coverage of Tiananmen Square in 1989 earned him CableACE, DuPont and Peabody awards.

He is also the author of “China Live: People Power and the Television Revolution” (1999) and “China Live: Two Decades in the Heart of the Dragon” (1997).

This lecture will be archived online. For a complete schedule of David M. Kennedy Center events, visit kennedy.byu.edu. For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or lee_simons@byu.edu.
