Former CNN Reporter Doug Levitt Takes The Bus To Musical Success

The path to success is not always as straightforward as many of us would believe it to be, as has been shown by the former journalist Doug Levitt on his bus journey to musical success. “The Greyhound Diaries” is the name of the project Levitt was inspired to begin in 2004 and has continued for over eight years as the former CNN correspondent has taken a closer look at the lives of people from across the U.S. whose views are rarely heard in the mainstream media.

Doug Levitt did not seem to be headed towards a music career when he embarked upon his first Greyhound bus journey that would form the basis of this multi media project that includes music, writing, photography, and the spoken word. Levitt appears to have always been seeking his direction in life, which included a change in studies at college from the sciences to international politics.

Eventually, Doug Levitt became one of the best known faces on CNN and was seen reporting on events from around the world; while posted to London in 2001 Doug Levitt decided he had to change his career and return to his first love of music and the arts. The move towards the arts is not something the Washington D.C. native has taken lightly as he initially seemed destined for the life of a politician if he followed in the footsteps of many of his family members.

“The Greyhound Diaries” sees Levitt touring the U.S. by bus and seeking out the stories he feels are rarely told by the mainstream press outside of the major metropolitan centers of the nation. Levitt was inspired to continue his journey beyond the initially planned six weeks and takes in the 2008 economic downturn that affected the American heartland like never before. The live performances revolving around “The Greyhound Diaries” include the songs released by Doug Levitt and a mixture of photography and spoken word that brings to mind the performances of great American artists of the early and mid 20th century.
