Known for thought-provoking news coverage and exceptional storytelling, Byron Pitts is the winner of several Emmy Awards. Currently co-anchor of ABC’s Nightline, he has also served as chief national correspondent for CBS Evening News and a regular contributor to 60 Minutes.

As he recounts in his 2009 memoir, Step Out On Nothing: How Family and Faith Helped Me Conquer Life’s Challenges, Pitts was illiterate until the age of 12 and struggled with a profound speech impediment. With the help of a few key people, he overcame these difficulties and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in journalism and speech communication.
