ABC News senior foreign affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz is profiled in today’s New York Times Sunday Styles section — looking stylish photographed atop ABC News’ Washington DC bureau.

If there has been a glamour beat in television news in recent years, it may well be war correspondent. Starting with the original “Scud Stud,” Arthur Kent of NBC in the 1991 gulf war, conflict reporters, including the current slate of Richard Engel (NBC), Lara Logan (CBS), and Ms. Raddatz’s ABC colleague Alexander Marquardt, have become news media celebrities not just for acting fearless but for looking fabulous.
