Marya McLaughlin - Biography
McLaughlin, who retired from CBS in 1988 after 25 years with the network, was one of the small group of pioneering women reporters who broke the gender line in broadcast news. McLaughlin and reporters like NBC News' Nancy Dickerson and ABC News' Marlene Sanders formed the vanguard of female television reporters who, in the 1960s, paved the way for today's female television journalists. She was first exposed to the lure of network news in the late 1950s as a researcher and assistant to NBC's David Brinkley and eventually worked on that network's evening newscast, The Huntley-Brinkley Report. CBS News hired her as an associate producer for its Election Unit in 1963.Her "big break" came in the spring of 1965, when she was named a general assignment reporter and desk editor in CBS News' New York bureau -- the network's first female reporter.
