Washington Post, January 7, 2009

America's most famous television surgeon, Sanjay Gupta, is President-elect Barack Obama's choice for U.S. surgeon general. A neurosurgeon who is also a correspondent for CNN and CBS, Gupta's selection suggests that the incoming administration values visible advisers who can drive a public message. He has also been offered a top post in the new White House Office of Health Reform.
