The Beauty of Retrospect: Norah O'Donnell

I first featured TV newswoman Norah O'Donnell back in February 2007, when she was at NBC and its sister cable channel MSNBC. She's changed jobs since.

In June 2011, she joined CBS News, still the gold standard of television journalism in the United States, and after a year and change as CBS's chief White House correspondent, she became a co-anchor of "CBS This Morning," the Tiffany Network's current morning news show.

There have been several attempts at a morning news show at CBS.  With Norah O'Donnell paired with Charlie Rose on this one, the venerable Columbia Broadcasting System (actually, the initials don't stand for that anymore, they're just corporate initials now) might hit pay dirt this time. 

How can it not, with Norah O'Donnell's smile and hearty laugh, not to mention her Irishness? :-)

Fun fact: Her husband is Washington, D.C. restaurateur Geoff Tracy.
