03.06.2012 Talking germany's host Peter Craven talks with Brent Goff about Agenda, America and impoverished academics.
Brent Goff was born in 1972 in Wilson, North Carolina. He grew up on a former tobacco plantation which his grandfather still ran. He became a scholarship student at a boarding school for the gifted in Durham, North Carolina.
A ten-month stay as an exchange student in Saarland awakened his interest in Germany. He returned to Germany as a Fulbright scholar and later as a journalist for CNN, before signing on as a presenter at Deutsche Welle. One reason for that was his enthusiasm for Berlin. In addition, Brent Goff teaches journalism at the Hamburg Media School as a guest lecturer. In his free time he works out under the guidance of a personal trainer in a fitness studio three times a week.
