I do not care for people labels.
When asked, "what do you do?" I ask, "When?"
On any given day, what I do could involve many things or just one thing - it depends. Most people recognize me from television as a news anchor or talk show host. In addition, I am a producer, attorney and author. However, in all things, I am a business woman. That is the common string that ties everything I do together.

Award-winning Producer, Television News Anchor/Host, Attorney and Author.
My international exposure began as a News Anchor at CNN. There, I was the first female anchor of CNN Newsroom, leading the show to be nominated for 9 daytime Emmy nominations. I also anchored CNN Newsnight, CNN Newshour, and CNN Newsday. As an Anchor, I won: The Headliner Award – Women in Communications, The President’s Award and CTPAA Crystal Award.
As a legal analyst, I track and dissect high profile trials and crimes for audiences around the globe. I am known for my in-depth profiles on political and sports figures and crime. I combine my legal expertise with my sports experience and knowledge from my years as Host & Correspondent at ESPN. There, I was the first female host of Tuesday Night Fights, where I interviewed the biggest names in news and sports.
I was also the first female analyst in boxing on television, working numerous Championship Fights as Color Analyst & Correspondent for Pay Per View and Fox International. I hosted shows on FOX, TNT, TBS, C-SPAN and OXYGEN. And I've been featured in Time Magazine, Runner’s World Magazine, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and on Entertainment Tonight and PBS. In addition to my television career, I've had the privilege of being appointed special political consultant and strategist under two Presidential administrations where I won special awards for work on various trials.
