Hotline Profiles Chalian

From their “Friday Feature“:

    David Chalian is the pol. dir. for ABC News. He co-anchors “Politics Live,” a daily political program on ABC News Now, the network’s 24-hour digital outlet. He is also a regular contributor to the “This Week All Week” webcast with George Stephanopoulos. In addition, Chalian provides regular political commentary for ABC News Radio and NewsOne, the network’s affiliate news service. He joined the net in March ’03 as a field producer based in NY. Before that he produced “Inside City Hall,” for NY1 News. But today he’s our Friday Feature:

    Where’s your hometown? What was it like growing up there?

    Marlboro, New Jersey. It was like growing up in a typical 1980s John Hughes film….

    What’s your most embarrassing on-the-job moment? (Or as embarrassing as you’d like to reveal?)

    Accidentally knocking a full glass of red wine all over James Carville at a work dinner in New Hampshire is certainly near the top of the list.

    If you could interview any deceased person, who would it be and why?

    William Shakespeare. He understood the power of storytelling about the leaders of his time better than most and I would love to hear his take on the leaders of our time. (It would also be fun to get his reaction to the Obamagirl video.)
