Journalist John Hockenberry

Marcia Franklin talks with John Hockenberry, a longtime journalist who is also the program director for the Sun Valley Writers conference. They discuss his goals for the event, as well as changes in the media world. They also talk about advances in adaptive technology for the disabled. Hockenberry became a paraplegic in an auto accident, but that didn't keep him from reporting all over the world. He recorded those wheelchair-piloted adventures in his 1995 book, Moving Violations - War Zones, Wheelchairs and Declarations of Independence.
