Ever been surprised by someone whom you admire the most? Norah O’Donnell recently stunned a young girl who adores her profession, and we have the video below.


CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell delighted a 9-year-old girl who loves Journalism with an unexpected phone call. A girl from Massachusetts named Abby Hucker has been reportedly struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The video clip plays out as O’Donnell reports from her front desk at the CBS studio as she crossed over live to tell Abby’s story. According to O’Donnell, Abby’s mother wrote a note to the news channel about her daughter’s quest for answers.

It turns out that watching the news has helped Abby get by during the pandemic. Her mother assured O’Donnell that she and her brother are doing okay now because of it.

According to her mom, knowledge empowers Abby to dismiss many of her fears. When Abby received O'Donnell's call, she widened her eyes as she looked at her mom in quite a shock as the journalist confidently told her that it’s her on the phone.


The news correspondent thanked Abby for watching the news and told her it’s amazing that she already loves journalism at her age. O'Donnell asked her how her family is doing, to which she replied, "Good."

While still on the phone with Abby, her father, Dr. Bill Hucker, who treats Covid-19 patients, was also on the line. Abby's dad shared a few words with O'Donnell as they both praised one another for their great service during this difficult time.


According to People, Abby often goes weeks without seeing her dad when he has to quarantine. The elementary pre-schooler has a kind heart as she also offered her tooth fairy money to her dad’s hospital when she learned that there was a short supply of PPE.

O’Donnell shared that Abby wants to be a journalist before concluding the story on "CBS Evening News." Journalism has played a big role in covering coronavirus news.


CBS Boston reported on some positive covid vaccine news. O’Donnell revealed that vaccines are bound to get approval, and that may happen sooner than expected. There could be 40 million doses distributed before the end of the year.

Pfizer's vaccine has also been approved, and the distribution will start next week in London. However, it is bittersweet as, according to O'Donnell, the US expects 450,000 deaths by February next year since it’s now the winter season.


From being a force to be reckoned with in journalism, O'Donnell is also a mom of three. In April, the 46-year-old shared her experience of working from home and multitasking by being a mom.

At the time, O'Donnell told People how, in one instance, she was on a call with someone from the White House, and her daughter shouted in the background about a printer that was not working.

“Lots of times, I’m on a conference call and cooking breakfast for the kids at the same time. Luckily, they have the ‘stop video’ feature on Zoom," she said. O'Donnell shares twins Grace and Henry and daughter Riley with her husband, Geoff Tracy.
