What can you tell me about CNN's morning anchor Robin Meade? Who is her husband and does she have children?
—Virginia K., Crystal Lake, Ill.
Lead anchor of CNN's news morning show Robin & Company, Meade, 36, was born in New London, Ohio, where childhood friends recall her playing broadcaster on a small tape recorder as a youngster. She honed her skills at local TV stations in Ohio, Illinois and Florida before settling in Atlanta for CNN. She has no children but notes that her husband, Tim, has tolerated her unconventional schedule for 12 years—in bed by 6 p.m., at work by 3 a.m. She enjoys interior decorating (she's even sewn some of her own window treatments) and singing. Many viewers ask about her distinctive laugh. "It's real," she says. "Something this loud and different couldn't be fake!"
