After finishing his studies, he took a big leap and finally started his journalism career at the Tel Aviv bureau of Reuters and later moved to The Jerusalem Post where he made international headlines for his interview with American convicted spy Jonathan Pollard.

In 1990, Blitzer started his career with CNN as a military affairs correspondent. He started reporting from Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, North Korea, and Russia.

His career started further-reaching new heights from then on and he started covering the White House which eventually became a scaffold for him to become the network’s lead political anchor.

In the duration of his career, Blitzer interviewed numerous heads of state and even moderated both Democratic and Republican presidential debates.

With all his great contribution to the journalism world, it isn’t a surprise anymore to know that he has been awarded… are you ready for this?

The Emmy, Peabody, Edward R. Murrow, Golden ACE, 2003 Daniel Pearl, 2004 Journalist Pillar of Justice, Alfred DuPont, American Veterans Award, 2019 Great Immigrants Recipient Award, and a whole lot more.

I could go on with his awards, but it would take me quite a while to finish, believe me. He truly is something!

He continuously strives higher and higher in his career and it would be delightful to know too that this career-oriented successful man is also a happily married man living a quiet normal life in Maryland.

Imagine having the best of both worlds, he isn’t the man of the hour for just nothing.
