In their latest New-York-themed issue, The Hollywood Reporter released a list of 35 Most Powerful People in Media. Of course, we just had to know – Where ‘dem girls at? To my surprise, Oprah was not on the list. There were, however, fifteen female contenders of equal caliber.
Let’s take a moment to reminisce: It was 1974 when Barbara Walters became the first female co-host in network news. (Barb, by the way, is still on the list.) Today, seeing celebrated women executives, anchors, and chairs makes us want to jump up and down in our seats. But for the sake of polite society, we express a succinct “Fuck yeah” and sip our coffees.
So without further ado, here are the women who tell you what to know:
Executive editor, “The New York Times”
Co-host, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”
Host and executive producer, ABC’s “Katie”
Anchor, Fox News’ “America Live”
Correspondant, CBS’ “60 Minutes”
co-host, “Live With Kelly and Michael”
