He reported on major domestic and international stories for World News, Nightline and Good Morning America. After a six-year assignment as Bureau Chief and Correspondent based in South Africa covering the end of Apartheid and the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and the ensuing peace negotiations, Richard began a new beat for the network focused on the digital revolution unfolding in the US.
