Mark Phillips Career
Phillips started his career as a legislative journalist for CBC News in Ottawa in the mid-1970s. He rose through the ranks of the network’s London offices to become a correspondent. After leaving CBC News in 1982, Phillips moved to the United States and worked as a correspondent for CBS News’ London bureau, covering events in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. He was the first non-British correspondent to report from the Falkland Islands during the British military’s fight in Argentina that year. From 1984 to 1986, Phillips was appointed to the CBS News bureau in Moscow, where he covered three Soviet leaders: Yuri Andropov, Konstantin Chernenko, and Mikhail Gorbachev, and the Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Moscow and the restart of US-Soviet weapons negotiations.
He was assigned to the CBS News bureau in Rome from 1986 to 1988, where he covered the Vatican and Pope John Paul II, the Iran-Iraq war, and the Afghan war, among other things. He was a CBS News correspondent in Washington from 1988 to 1993, covering American politics, the investigation into the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, the United Airlines disaster in Sioux City, the Eastern Airlines strike, and the Persian Gulf War in 1991. Phillips did return to the CBS News bureau in London in 1993, where he covered numerous significant events that are still being covered today, including the Balkans conflict, Princess Diana’s death, and the Iraq weapons inspection fights. His work has been acknowledged with several EMMY awards, as well as the Radio-Television News Directors Association’s 2014 Edward R.
