When I'm in the US, I have watched Carole Simpson many times. She is one of my favorite news personalities. She is well spoken and I just plain like the way she puts out the news. Nice and efficient.  bigthumbsup

Wasn't she actively helping out Hillary Clinton during the primaries? I think she will be mostly
remembered for calling George HW Bush "the education president" during one of the debates
she co-moderated in 1992. (BTW she was being sarcastic about that)

I dont know about famous "now". I believe she was much larger in the 80;s or 90;s. She was the weekend anchor on ABC World News Tonight up until the late 90s or early 2000s. You can tell those videos were definately from the 90s. (early). I believe she was one of the first black females to broadcast major network news, she was not the main weekday anchor (Peter Jennings was for abc) but backed him up in absence. Not sure where she was on her week day runs. I've always liked her broadcasts.
