Max Westerman – host

Leading journalist

Max Westerman is a journalist who spent nearly thirty years reporting from the United States, earning critical acclaim for his understanding of American politics, culture and society. But that's not all.

Besides covering most important American news stories of recent decades, he leads the way by infusing his reportage, television programs and books with humor and other story-telling techniques that make them interesting for a mass audience.

Westerman is convinced that, despite the proliferation of new sources of information on the internet, quality journalism will lead the future. Westerman will be hosting TEDxRotterdam.
