Reporting in the Islamic Republic of Iran

In 2007, Guzder received a grant from the Carnegie and Knight Foundations to travel to Iran as News 21’s foreign correspondent. Guzder reported from Tehran, Shiraz, Esfahan, Yazd, and Persepolis.

Mark Glaser of PBS commented on her reporting: Guzder’s search for her Zoroastrian roots in Iran was first person and conversational . . . If we could only hear these voices more often, and have constant cross-cultural communication, maybe we would have less war mongering and more peacemaking. Maybe, with deliberation and tough debate, we would discover our differences and similarities.
