Hey, How'd You Go from ABC's Nightline to Intelligence Squared Debates, Dana Wolfe?
This Emmy-Award winner learned to 'strive for the best' while working for the best- August 27, 2012
When Dana Wolfe left Nightline in 2001, she was in a pretty good place professionally. During her 12-year tenure as a producer under Ted Koppel, she'd already racked up five Emmys and interviewed everyone from Henry Kissinger to Salman Rushdie.
"After Nightline, I took literally two months off, thinking I was going to take a year off," she recalled. "I had two young children; I thought I should drive in the carpool, plant my own garden and put photos in albums."
But after a stint as an independent media consultant, Wolfe unknowingly got recommended to run the stateside version of The Rosenkranz Foundation's popular Intelligence Squared live debate program, and found herself thrown right back into the fiery newsroom environment, albeit in a different setting.
