—Alberta Noble, Oak Grove, Mo.

Born into the hypercharged political climate of Washington, D.C., Warner, 56, is one of three senior correspondents on the nightly newscast. "Politics interested me from the time I was a teenager," she says. "Growing up in Washington, politics were all around, even though my family was not involved in it. When I went to college, it was a politically charged era, from '67 to '71." Warner has been married for 20 years and has six stepchildren, as well as several grandchildren.
