WASHINGTON  — Veteran foreign correspondent, reporter and commentator Daniel Schorr, whose hard-hitting reporting for CBS got him on President Richard M. Nixon's notorious "enemies list" in the 1970s, has died. He was 93.

Schorr died Friday at a Washington hospital after a brief illness, said Anna Christopher, a spokeswoman for National Public Radio, where Schorr continued to work as a senior news analyst and commentator.

Born in New York City to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents, Schorr began his career in journalism while he was in high school. When he was not working on the student newspaper, he spent his free time as a stringer for the Bronx Home News and the Jewish Daily Bulletin. During college, Schorr also worked part-time for several metropolitan dailies.

Schorr's career of more than six decades spanned the spectrum of journalism, beginning in print, then moving to television where he spent 23 years with CBS News and ending with NPR. He also wrote several books, including his memoir, "Staying Tuned: A Life in Journalism."
