NORAH O'DONNELL

Norah O'Donnell was born in Washington but she was raised in Texas, Germany, and South Korea. She describes herself as a "military brat" and graduated from Georgetown University.

Despite the lockdown and covid-19 safety precautions, O'Donnell was one of the few news anchors who wasn't forced to work from her home.

Her career began as a reporter for Roll Call newspaper where she would cover congressional districts with her tape recorder, camera, and notebook. O'Donnell admitted that this close connection to her sources helped her become a better journalist.

Her broadcast debut was at NBC where she spent 12 years covering the White House, Pentagon, and Congress. Then she joined "CBS This Morning," "60 Minutes," and "CBS Evening News."

FAMILY LIFE

O'Donnell is married to Geoff Tracy, a chef and restaurant owner. The couple share three children - cute twins, Grace and Henry, and a lovely daughter Riley.

During the lockdown period, the mother-of-three juggled her responsibilities as a stay-at-home mom and the managing editor for "CBS Evening News" and according to her, it was quite challenging.

However, the 46-year-old didn't neglect herself and disclosed that she spent time working out with her trainer via FaceTime and joining her kids on the trampoline.

"CBS EVENING NEWS"

Last year, O'Donnell was named the anchor for "CBS Evening News" and became the second female to hold that position since Katie Couric. The job required the journalist to move to Washington, which according to CBS was for easy access to sources.

The mother-of-three was excited about her job and promised to do her best. After spending about two decades as a journalist, O'Donnell has interviewed some of the world's most influential men.

WORKING DURING THE PANDEMIC

Despite the lockdown and covid-19 safety precautions, O'Donnell was one of the few news anchors who wasn't forced to work from her home. She appeared every weeknight on "CBS Evening News" which was being filmed in Washington.

The journalist provided new updates on the COVID-19 pandemic while working alongside her father, who is an infectious disease specialist and she also reported touching stories about humanity to keep hope alive.
