During a storied career, Scott Pelley—“the most well-qualified and proven television journalist ever to ascend to the anchor job” (Columbia Journalism Review)—has bridged the Golden Age when Legacy Media was king and today’s New Media age where notions of “fake news” and the twittersphere shape each frenetic news cycle. Still, in forty-five years of journalism, Pelley can point to one constant: people—often ordinary people—who have discovered the meaning of their lives when faced with the extraordinary challenges of history. 
In “Truth Worth Telling: A Reporter’s Search for Meaning in the Stories of Our Time,” the former CBS Evening News anchor and much admired 60 Minutes correspondent recalls and reflects upon some of his most dramatic, moving and inspiring encounters in the field and how they exemplify what is good about humanity both in America and abroad. With the elegant yet straightforward storytelling skills of a seasoned journalist, Pelley shares private recollections of very public moments as well as intimate portraits of acts of courage, hope, determination and humanity. As a counterbalance to the divisive partisanship that has split our society, Pelley offers values, ethics and the importance of telling the truth.
Scott Pelley has been a reporter and photographer for more than 45 years. He is best known for his work on 60 Minutes and as anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News. Pelley’s work has been recognized with three duPont-Columbia Awards, three Peabody Awards, the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, and 37 Emmy Awards. Pelley is the most awarded correspondent in the history of 60 Minutes.
“The legacy of Edward R Murrow lives on in the daring, long-range investigation of Scott Pelley,” says the Washington Times. “Pelley’s tenure has been marked his intelligent, truth-seeking approach to the news,” said The Washington Post, “pulling no punches while still remaining impartial. ‘Truth Worth Telling’ is an inspiring work, much needed at this troubled juncture in our nation’s history.”
