Dozier Special On CBS Tonight

Exactly one year ago, CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier's crew was attacked while in Baghdad. They were embedded with the Army's Fourth Infantry Division Dozier, cameraman Paul Douglas and soundman James Brolan. Douglas and Brolan were killed while Dozier, after having been declared by doctors as dead, somehow survived.

Tonight at 10, CBS News will present Flashpoint. Hosted by Katie Couric, the special will tell not only Dozier's story but the stories of others who have been injured in Iraq.

CBS 2 News anchor Jim Rosenfield's interview with Dozier will air beginning on CBS 2 News at 5:00 today.

For a little over a year, Dozier was CBS 2's Middle East bureau chief based in Jerusalem. According to the NewsByte2 Archives, the bureau opened in March 2002 as the station sought to increase its international coverage in the months after September 11th. Dozier focused primarily on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but also reported on the early months of the war in Iraq before returning to the network full time.

WCBSTV.com put together a page with video of some of Dozier's reports for CBS 2 News and CBS News over the years.
