Aside from possibly having the coolest name in the business, Wolf Blitzer is also CNN
's premier correspondent-turned-anchorperson. He currently hosts "The World Today
," billed as CNN's flagship news program, and "Late Edition
," the only Sunday talk show
that comes on late enough for me to watch (save the McLaughlin Group
, of course).
He joined CNN in 1990 as the network's "military-affairs correspondent" at the Pentagon, which means he got to be on TV a lot; that's about the time George Herbert Walker Bush waged war on Iraq for his old oil business buddies. But I digress. Blitzer continued to be Senior White House Correspondent from 1992-1998.
I can still hear CNN's Gulf War theme echo throughout my head whenever he's on. Those were the days.
