Personal Quote:

The first time I felt like I truly 'shattered the glass ceiling' was when I became the first female co-anchor of the "Today" show after climbing the ranks. I felt this same sense of accomplishment when I joined the ABC News family in 1976. I suddenly realized that my face would be in millions of people's homes every night. See more »
