Robin Lloyd

Camden — The Camden Conference will present Robin Lloyd at the Camden Public Library Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. His talk, “Covering the Casualties of War: Witnessing the Seeds of Revolt. A foreign correspondent looks back” will focus on his exposure to some of the most unsettled and dangerous areas of the world. This event is free and open to all.

A veteran correspondent for NBC News for nearly 15 years, Robin Lloyd filed reports from more than 30 countries, mostly in Latin America and Africa. In several places he came to understand how some governments try to intimidate and manipulate the press and use paramilitary groups or non-uniformed police to silence all opposition — including the press. Lloyd also covered the White House and the State Department during the Reagan and Bush administrations. Lloyd has been involved in television journalism for more than 40 years. He has a home in Camden and has been coming to Maine with his family since the early 80s.

This event is presented in anticipation of the 33rd Annual Camden Conference—The Media Revolution: Changing the World, February 21 through 23, 2020. For more information, visit camdenconference.org or call 236-1034.
