Remembering Cokie Roberts

Veteran journalist Cokie Roberts has died at age 75. Roberts joined NPR in 1978, the start of a remarkable career that led her to ABC News in 1988, though she remained on NPR as a commentator until her death. Roberts died Tuesday due to complications from breast cancer, according to a family statement. Walter Edgar interviewed Roberts during a 2004 book tour promoting her book, Founding Mothers , when she made a stop at Litchfield Books.
