What can you tell me about CNN anchor Kyra Phillips, including how she met her husband, Miles O'Brien?
—R.R. Barrett Jr., Grafton, Vt.

Actually, Phillips is not married to Miles O'Brien. They were, however, anchor partners for six years until O'Brien moved to New York to head up American Morning last June, and Phillips remained in Atlanta to anchor CNN's Live From. Phillips, 37, whose first interview was with Dr. Seuss for a school newspaper she started in the fourth grade, loves her work. "There's never a dull moment," she says. "The most rewarding aspect is when I do an interview that empowers or helps someone." She has been married five years and loves traveling and golf.
