It was Edward R. Murrow, the inventor of broadcast journalism, who hired Sevareid for CBS News in 1939. For the rest of his career Sevareid resisted the slow surrender of broadcast journalism to popular showmanship and always championed the values of broadcast news as Murrow had defined them - freedom, fairness, and solid reporting. Sevareid was one of the great American journalists and Schroth has turned his life into one of the great American stories.
