Margaret Brennan has been going places in broadcast journalism since I last featured her on this blog in August 2007.
She moved to Bloomberg Television in 2009, anchoring the 10:00 AM Eastern hour on the news channel, and she eventually got to host her own show, "InBusiness With Margaret Brennan," which covered international news affecting the markets.
In July 2012, she joined CBS News, where she has been since. She is primarily the network's State Department correspondent, but she's also been a substitute anchor on "CBS This Morning" and the CBS Evening News. She was one of the few American news correspondents reporting from Tehran during the 2012 Non-Aligned Movement, which was the biggest international gathering in Iran since the mullahs overthrew the Shah.
