    (March 4, 1942- )
    Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Guest host of the 'MacNeil-Lehrer Report' (1977)
    Reporter/editor for 'Conde Nast' (1983-85)
    Correspondent for 20/20 (1986- )
    Wrote 'Susan B. Anthony Slept Here: A Guide to American Women's Landmarks' (1994), 'Tall Blondes: A Book About Giraffes' (1997), 'America the Beautiful: The Stirring Story Behind Our Nation's Favorite Song' (2001) and 'Outside the Box: A Memoir' (2006)
    She said she identifies with giraffes because she considers herself gawky. ('I'm 5 feet 8. I was this tall when I was 13.')
    She dated Peter Jennings.
    She criticized Sarah Palin for calling herself a feminist, asking 'What paths has she forged?' (Hey, she broke the glass ceiling to allow women as incompetent as, say, Dan Quayle to be on a presidential ticket.)
    She feels insulted when people confuse her with Lesley Stahl.
    She said, 'When I first got to New York out of college in 1963 and went job hunting, I was told point blank by every newspaper editor in New York City, 'We don't hire girls.' The extraordinary thing is that it never occurred to any of us that we should complain.'
    She was ABC's principal space correspondent and noted, 'Covering space, for sheer physical excitement, is unbeatable.'
    She won a Peabody Award for 'Hunger Inside,' a 20/20 report on anorexia.
    Her husband Larry Hilford died from cancer, and she has survived colon cancer.
