 Forrest Sawyer Biography

Forrest Sawyer has had a diverse career, first as one of Americas most respected television journalists, and more recently as an entrepreneur in innovative health care.

Sawyer is today an advisor and board member of Edison Pharmaceuticals, the world leader in the study of mitochondrial disease. He is also a co-founder of Ampere Life Sciences, a newly launched company developing medical and functional foods targeting antioxidant deficiencies. In addition to unique research and development programs, both companies are building innovative communication platforms.

As a journalist, Sawyer has over 24 years of experience reporting from around the world. He is a veteran of ABC, CBS, and MSNBC. He has anchored the ABC magazine programs Day One and Turning Point, as well as World News Sunday and Good Morning America. For a decade Sawyer was the primary replacement anchor on ABCs Nightline.

Sawyer is the founder of FreeFall Productions, an award-winning documentary production company. He has reported documentaries for ABC News, MSNBC, Frontline and the Discovery Networks. His work includes the acclaimed documentary Return to the Ia Drang, which for the first time brought United States veterans back to a critical Vietnam battlefield to meet their one-time enemies. And in Kosovo, Forrest documented from the battlefield the controversial deployment of Apache helicopters that resulted in the only American casualties of war.

Sawyer is a veteran war correspondent, having reported on every United States action over the past two decades. In 1990 and 1991, he spent eight months covering the Gulf War, scoring numerous exclusives from Baghdad to Saudi Arabia to Iran; including reports from inside Kuwait City before it was liberated by coalition forces.

His world travels include reports from the Oklahoma City terrorist attack, a report from inside KGB headquarters on the Lee Harvey Oswald Soviet intelligence file and the attempted coup of Manuel Noriega in Panama. Sawyers work has carried him throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

Over the course of two decades as a national journalist, Sawyer has reported extensively on the impact of human activity on the environment. His reports have included an examination of deforestation in the Amazon; water issues in the Everglades; a week-long Discovery Television series on increased tornado and storm activity and several reports on climate change.

Sawyer has had numerous honors during his career, including the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, seven National Emmy Awards, two Sigma Delta Chi Awards, two Edward R. Murrow Awards, an Associated Press Award, an Ohio State Award, an Ark Award and two American Psychological Association Awards.

Sawyer has a Master of Education degree from the University of Florida, as well as extensive post-graduate work in environmental science. His Bachelor of Arts degree, also from the University of Florida, is in Eastern philosophy and world religions.
