'Turkey, Iran, and the US: International Tensions Under the Trump Administration' with NPR correspondent Peter Kenyon

Tuesday | September 18th | 5:00 | KTOO Studios: @360

Peter Kenyon is an award-winning foreign correspondent for National Public Radio based in Istanbul. He is covering two countries under heavy pressure from the Trump administration, Iran and Turkey, bringing complex stories to life and adding an international perspective to NPR's coverage. Mr. Kenyon will present on his personal experiences in the region as international agreements are upended and regular relations beome anything-but.

Prior to taking this assignment in 2010, Kenyon spent five years in Cairo covering Middle Eastern and North African countries from Syria to Morocco. From 2001 to 2005, he was based in Jerusalem and covered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In addition to regular stints in Iraq, he has followed stories to Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Bahrain, Qatar, Algeria, Morocco and other countries in the region.

Kenyon came to NPR in 1995 from the Alaska Public Radio Network. He began his public radio career in Petersburg, where he met his wife Nevette, a commercial fisherwoman.
