Fareed Zakaria   Fareed Zakaria is host of CNN’s flagship foreign affairs show, a Washington Post columnist, a contributing editor for The Atlantic and a New York Times bestselling author.

Born in India on January 20, 1964,  Zakaria went on to receive a B.A. from Yale College and a Ph.D. from Harvard University. He has received honorary degrees from numerous universities including Johns Hopkins, Brown, the University of Miami, and Oberlin College.

Zakaria self-identifies as a "centrist", though he has been described variously as a political liberal, a conservative, a moderate, or a radical centrist.In January 2009 Forbes referred to Zakaria as one of the 25 most influential liberals in the American media.  Esquire Magazine called him “the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation.”  Zakaria has stated that he tries not to be devoted to any type of ideology, saying "I feel that's part of my job... which is not to pick sides but to explain what I think is happening on the ground. I can't say, 'This is my team and I'm going to root for them no matter what they do.

Zakaria has been nominated five times for the National Magazine Award, and won it once, for his columns and commentary. His show has won a Peabody Award and been nominated for several Emmys. He was conferred India Abroad Person of the Year 2008.   His most recent book, In Defense of a Liberal Education, has been praised in the New York Times as “an accessible, necessary defense of an idea under siege.”

He was the 2000 Annual Orator of the Philomathean Society of the University of Pennsylvania.  In January 2010, Zakaria was given the Padma Bhushan award by the Indian government for his contribution to the field of journalism.

He serves on the board of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New America Foundation, Columbia University's International House, City College of New York's Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, and Shakespeare and Company. He was a trustee of Yale University and the Trilateral Commission.

Zakaria lives in New York City with his wife, son and two daughters.
