In this episode, The Mentors Radio host Tom Loarie talks with Peggy Stanton, ABC-TV’s first woman news correspondent in Washington D.C., about her pioneering journey into journalism at a time when very few women were in the field. What attracted her to a career in journalism? Peggy shares some highlights of her experiences as an ABC news correspondent in D.C. and more. She also talks about principles of good journalism. Her storied world experiences include politicians and celebrities such as Lyndon Johnson, Fidel Castro, Julia Andrews, Saint Pope John Paul II, Salvador Dali and more. Focused on career, she did not anticipate marrying a Congressman along the way, whose career segued to international business. You’ll also learn about Peggy’s very unexpected life-changing experience in a former communist bloc country, in a small town called Medjugorje which she visited with her daughter, at her daughter’s urging.
A compelling writer, Stanton recently penned a book (From the White House to the White Cross) about her career and experiences that many have praised as “you can’t put it down!” (see below)
