Lisa Ling: ‘OWN is hands down the best place I’ve ever worked’

Lisa Ling got her start as a TV correspondent when she was only 15. Since then, she’s come a long way, co-hosting The View, National Geographic’s Explorer and OWN’s Our America. In the latest installment of Mediabistro’s So What Do You Do? interview series, FishbowlLA’s own Richard Horgan spoke with the Sacramento native about about her experience working for Oprah Winfrey.

“I am so lucky to work for OWN. It is the most creative freedom I’ve ever had in a job and I am so incredibly grateful for that,” said Ling. “I also have a great deal of respect for the OWN executives who oversee our show. We really operate in such a collaborative way, and I love it. I’ve never felt pressure to do anything about which I have felt uncomfortable. OWN is hands down the best place I’ve ever worked.”
