A Day in the Life: Christiane Amanpour

By on Monday, October 3, 2011

I once  had a client with a very localized story in the DC area say to me – maybe you can get Christiane Amanpour to cover it! It was not likely at the time, given that Amanpour was across the world and very focused on reporting in conflict zones.

But Amanpour’s influence as America’s most well-known foreign correspondent was definitely shown in my client’s starry-eyed request and her admiration for the journalist’s work. Amanpour’s new role with ABC’s “This Week” offers options for story pitching for U.S. based stories of national importance that weren’t possible years ago when she was on the other side of the globe.

Now admirers can get a glimpse inside Amanpour’s daily life in this article in Wall Street Journal magazine. She admits she’s learning new skills on the job as she schedules guests and adjusts to her role as a news anchor. Click on the interactive graphics tab to see an hour-by-hour timetable of her day and photos.

Everyone wants to know what you think.
