Brooke Baldwin

January 7, 2022

During her time at CNN, Brooke was often sent into the field to cover the biggest breaking stories in the US and around the world. She has covered everything from natural disasters, mass shootings, and terror attacks. Brooke had the privilege of meeting Presidents and interviewing former first ladies, members of Congress, scientists, teachers, nurses, astronauts, actors, activists, rock stars and ordinary. Americans in extraordinary circumstances – from surviving mass shootings to hurricanes to COVID-19. She also anchored extensive coverage of the Obama and Trump administrations and has also reported on stories from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. (Ask her what it’s like to be catapulted off an aircraft carrier.) Since her show aired in the middle of the afternoon when news tends to break, she was often live on camera experiencing historic moments in real time along with the rest of the nation. In her last few years at CNN, Brooke created and hosted her own CNN Digital series American Woman where she shined a light on trailblazing women in politics and pop culture. Prior to joining CNN in 2008, Brooke worked at local TV stations in Washington DC, Charleston-Huntington, WV and Charlottesville, VA. She earned a double bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Brooke now makes her home in New York. She is dedicated to huddling, meditating, working out, traveling (in normal times!), hiking, reading, and hanging with her family, which includes her husband James and their pug, Pugsley.
