Roger Mudd joined CBS in 1961 and rose to fame as the congressional correspondent, covering the historic Senate filibuster debate over the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Mudd was there to see Dan Rather going toe-to-toe with the Nixon White House, Marvin Kalb deciphering the State Department, Daniel Schorr bird-dogging Watergate, Lesley Stahl and Connie Chung staking out all the president's men, George Herman presiding over Face the Nation, Bob Schieffer covering the Pentagon like a police reporter, and Eric Sevareid making what he called small sounds in the night.The Place to Be is the story of both a unique news bureau - instrumental at the time in setting the agenda at home and abroad on issues like Vietnam, civil rights, and Watergate - and of one reporter's passion and commitment to the pursuit of news.

    " Roger Mudd's memoirs. He is a good writer and sheds new light (to me anyway) on many events and gives an interesting look at how broadcast news was put together. "

    " This is a well-written insider's story about the CBS News Washington Bureau, with a glimpse of Roger Mudd's life. A very good book. Mudd should write more. "
