It looks like Lara Logan is sticking around CBS for a couple of more years at least.
Page Six says that Logan has signed a new two year contract with CBS News following a tough battle with her health.
Logan has had a difficult year after being repeatedly hospitalized with complications from her injuries stemming from a brutal sexual assault in Egypt in 2011.
Logan was forcefully separated from her producer and bodyguard as she reported in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, surrounded by the crowds celebrating the toppling of then-President Hosni Mubarak. Logan was beaten and sexually assaulted by a group of men. She later said in an interview with Scott Pelley, “There was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying . . . I thought not only am I going to die, but it’s going to be just a torturous death that’s going to go on forever,” before a woman saved her by putting her arms around her.
In February, Logan was admitted to the hospital with the digestive disease diverticulitis and internal bleeding. Her friend Ed Butowsky has said, “Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is . . . No idea the physical suffering she has been enduring.” CBS declined to comment on her new contract.
