Seriously injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq, Bob Woodruff is a throwback to the reporters of years ago who brought you the news no matter what the danger.
Sharing stories from his moving and inspirational best-selling memoir, In An Instant, which he co-authored with his wife Lee, Woodruff captivates audiences and leaves them with a new understanding of the fragility of life, the strength of family, the bravery of those who helped save his life and lessons on how to survive and overcome even the most tragic of circumstances. For his intrepid ability to get at the heart of a story, Woodruff has won numerous awards including three Emmys, a George Foster Peabody, an Alfred I. Dupont Award and the Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism.
