Mort Rosenblum, reporter, author, and educator, has covered stories on seven continents since the 1960s, from war in Biafra to tango dancing by the Seine. He was editor of the International Herald Tribune in Paris; special correspondent for The Associated Press; AP bureau chief in Africa, Southeast Asia, Argentina, and France; and founding editor of the quarterly, Dispatches. He now runs Reporting Unlimited, which includes the Mort Report, magazine pieces, books and educational outreach.
“Mort Rosenblum, likely the most traveled correspondent in the history of journalism, has borne brilliant, incisive witness to reality in 200 countries, some that no longer exist.”
– Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us and Countdown
He divides his time among a boat in Paris, an olive farm in Provence and far-flung reporting trips. He returns routinely to Tucson, where he is professor emeritus at the University of Arizona, to scout wildflowers and eat enchiladas. He focuses now on endangered democracy, looming war and climate collapse but also lightens up on occasion. He is at work on a 14th book, about which he remains evasive.
Reporting Unlimited, an LLC with non-profit links, attempts to connect old hands who’ve learned stuff the hard way to young people with fresh eyes and energy. And more, it is aimed at anyone with a conscience — citizen citizens — who want guidance on what and whom to believe in today’s tower-of-babble information cacophony.
