About the Author

About the Author

One of America's most enduring broadcasters, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist Geraldo Rivera is a Fox News correspondent-at-large and host of breaking news specials, the Geraldo Rivera Reports. He also provides weekly reporting and commentary for FNC's Fox and Friends and Hannity. A native New Yorker outraged by the terror attacks of 9/11, he left CNBC's Rivera Live to become a FNC senior war correspondent, reporting live from Afghanistan beginning with the initial siege on Osama bin Laden's Tora Bora hideout, and broke the news ten years later that the terror mastermind had finally been killed by SEAL Team 6. He has reported extensively on the Arab-Israeli conflict and other armed conflicts around the globe, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq, one of eleven extended assignments there.

Rivera began his forty-eight-year television career at WABC-TV in New York where he presented a series exposing the deplorable conditions at the Willowbrook State School for residents then described as mentally retarded. These historic reports are credited with helping end the nation's policy of warehousing the developmentally disabled.

Before becoming a member of the original cast of ABC's Good Morning America, Rivera presented the first television broadcast of the Zapruder film of the assassination of President John Kennedy as host of ABC's Goodnight America. He then began an eight-year association with ABC's 20/20 as senior correspondent. One of his hour-long reports, "The Elvis Cover-Up," was for more than two decades 20/20's highest rated. Between 1987 and 1998, he produced and hosted Geraldo!, later called, The Geraldo Rivera Show, for daytime TV. The winner of the 2000 Robert F. Kennedy journalism award (his third) for his NBC News documentary on "Women in Prison," and the Scripps Howard Foundation national journalism award for another NBC special report, "Back to Bedlam," Rivera has received hundreds of honors for journalism and community service, including the prestigious George Foster Peabody, the Columbia Dupont, and three national and seven local Emmys.

An avid sailor who circumnavigated the globe, skippered four Marion to Bermuda yacht races, and took his vessel Voyager hundreds of miles up the Amazon River, Rivera is a graduate of the University of Arizona and Brooklyn Law School, and is the author of seven previous books. A philanthropist whose causes include the care and treatment of the disabled, he is married to the former Erica Michelle Levy and has five children, four of them adults. Geraldo and Erica live happily ever after with their twelve-year-old daughter Sol in Cleveland, Ohio. Go Cavs.
