Shedding light on darkness


Susan Candiotti, CNN national correspondent,


reports on events that shape our history.


By JENNY KUSTRA-QUINN


USAN CANDIOTTI (BA ’76) has had a front seat to history for the past 20 years, interviewing current and former presidents and playing a significant role in cov- ering some of the most important and memorable stories of our time. As a CNN national correspondent, she has helped viewers make sense of tragedies that have reverberated throughout the country and beyond—from the Oklahoma City bombing to 9/11 to the Sandy Hook shootings.


Candiotti, who specializes in terror cases and law enforcement reporting, says she always has


gravitated toward stories involving crimes or tragedies, not just to report the events, but also to give a voice to those affected. “When you cover these kinds of stories, there’s the horrific event, but there’s also the people who suffer from it,” she says. “There are victims whose stories need to be told.”
