Lara Logan, Chief Foreign Affairs correspondent for CBS News, has been selected as the midlifebachelor.com Woman of the Month for September 2009!

I usually watch the west coast edition of CBS News at 6:30 p.m., and on any given day I typically find myself staring at a report from Lara Logan over in Iraq or Afghanistan.  Sometimes she shows up on 60 Minutes, too.   Every time I see that woman, I think of two things … first, I love that sexy South African accent of hers, and second, I marvel at the outstanding combination of brains and beauty she possesses.  Of all of our previous Woman of the Month picks – I’d guess that Lara Logan would probably be the most interesting, well-rounded, and well-traveled to speak to.  She is truly awesome!

Here is what we know about Lara Logan.  She was born March 29, 1971 in Durban, South Africa – so she is 38 years old (and looking excellent).  She graduated in 1992 from the University of Natal in Durban.  She worked as a producer for Reuters Television from 1992 to 1996, and then as a general news reporter for the Daily News from 1990 to 1992, then for the Sunday Tribune from 1998 to 1999 – in South Africa.  She then went on to work as a television journalist for GMTV from 2000 to 2002.  While working in Afghanistan in 2001, she was able to secure an interview with General Babajan of the Northern Alliance (which was working with the U.S. at the time against the Taliban).  Since 2002, she has been working in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Middle East working as an embedded reporter with combat troops for CBS.  She did such an exceptional job for CBS News that they named her Chief Foreign Correspondent in February 2006.

In terms of Lara Logan’s personal life – we understand she has been married twice.  Her current (second) husband is a federal contractor from Texas – and they have one son who was born in January 2009.

There are a ton of youtube videos of Lara Logan in action, but I chose this one – which is a personal interview with Lara just so you can get a better feel for who she is.


Typically at this point, we attempt to analyze our Woman of the Month pick in terms of the Midlifebachelor.com 14 Types of Women.  Which type or types do you suppose Lara Logan might be?  Well, she is certainly a Jackpot (see Types of Women – Jackpot) since she is a high income earner.  If you know Lara Logan personally and/or would to share something about her – please add a COMMENT to the comment section at the bottom of this page!
