(Random House/Crown/Three Rivers) Sieberg also contributes to Details magazine and other TV networks including BBC World News America, PBS, MSNBC, CBS Sunday Morning, and the Discovery Channel. He was the CBS News science and technology correspondent from December 2006 to February 2010 reporting for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, The Early Show ,CBS Sunday Morning , CBS Radio and CBSNews.com.

In conversation with Daniel will be Thomas Roberts, MSNBC dayside anchor and an award-winning journalist. Thomas anchors various hours of MSNBC’s live news coverage, and often served as a fill-in host on MSNBC’s “First Look,” “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” and NBC’s TODAY.
