About Host Geraldo Rivera
Geraldo Rivera, hard-hitting investigative reporter, accomplished interviewer and champion of citizens' rights, is one of America's most successful television journalists and public advocates. Through his distinguished work as an author, news producer, war correspondent, talk show host, and philanthropist, Rivera has made enormous contributions in the fields of broadcasting and community service.

Rivera began his news career in 1970 when he joined New York's WABC-TV as a reporter for "Eyewitness News." In 1972, he presented a series of ten investigative reports exposing deplorable conditions at the Willowbrook State School for the mentally ill. These award-winning reports led to a government investigation, court intervention and the subsequent closing of much of the institution.

These groundbreaking reports firmly established Rivera as a staunch advocate of the public's right to know, as well as an effective voice for social and political change. Never one to shy away from controversy, Rivera has practiced his uniquely effective brand of television journalism for more than forty years, pursuing and breaking stories that make a difference in people's lives.
