Simon joined NPR in 1977 as chief of its Chicago bureau. Since then, he has
reported from all 50 states, covered presidential campaigns and eight wars, and
reported from Central America, Africa, India, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. In
2002, Simon took leave of his usual post at Weekend Edition Saturday to cover the
war in Afghanistan for NPR. He has also reported from Central America on the
continuing wars in that region; from Cuba on the nation's resistance to change;
from Ethiopia on the country's famine and prolonged civil war; from the Middle East
during the Gulf War; and from the siege of Sarajevo and the destruction of Kosovo.

The son of comedian Ernie Simon and actress Patricia Lyons, Simon grew up in
Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Montreal, Cleveland, and
Washington, DC. He attended the University of Chicago and McGill University, and
he has received a number of honorary degrees.

In the summer of 2000, Simon married Caroline Richard. His hobbies are Mexican
cooking, ballet, book collecting, and living and dying for the Chicago Cubs (and
now the French national soccer team).
