Reporting from the frontlines of war for almost ten years was a daily job for Jim Axelrod. But do you know what was at stake for a man who was the first person to report live from Bagdad Airport when American troops took over it? He was risking his own life and had no time to think about his family, wife or kids while on duty. He was a family man but a reporter at the same time who was merely doing his job.

Jim Axelrod is a CBS's senior national correspondent and responsible for such programs like ‘CBS This Morning," the "CBS Evening News," "CBS Sunday Morning," and CBS News broadcasts.

Jim Axelrod’s Marriage to Wife Christina:

Living a life of a TV journalist and reporting live from the frontlines of the war with terrorism, his responsibility as a husband and a father often took a backseat in his life. His work was essential to him not because he had a family to feed, but because big responsibility laid on his shoulder.

Jim is a married man and has a beautiful relationship with his wife named Christina Axelrod. In the year 2003, he was a proud parent two children named Emma and Will Axelrod with the third one ready to step tiny feet in Planet Earth.

Then, he was given the responsibility to cover US military combat during US military excursion in Iraq by CBS News in the same year. But the thing which infuriates is that his wife was seven-month pregnant. However, he continued reporting minute by minute live television coverage of the US military ground force in Iraq.

He was a workaholic and being away for a long time from his wife and family was straining the relationship with his wife. Finally, he decided to compromise in his ambitions and give more focus on his other aspects of life and provided enough time for his children and family.
