Over a distinguished 30-year broadcast career, Kalb served as a key correspondent for both NBC News and CBS News and was the moderator of "Meet the Press."

A frequent commentator on PBS' "NewsHour" and other radio and television programs, Kalb continues to produce provocative lecture series and television programs about politics and journalism.
