Lisa Ling

Lisa Ling is an American journalist and a correspondent for CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show. She is also a former co-host of ABC’s The View. Ling has done several international investigative reports including bride burning in India, child trafficking in Ghana, and gang rape in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as many national stories.

In 2008, CNN’s award winning documentary Planet in Peril featured Ling in the series’ second installment, called “Battlelines”. She expsed excessive shark fishing in Costa Rica, elephant poaching in Chad, and gave an inside look at the battle for the control over oil in Nigeria.

What I admire most about Ling is her ability to ask all the right questions and tell the story in a compelling way. She has traveled all over the world telling the stories that need to be heard. I look forward to her a documentary series on Oprah’s new network, OWN beginning in January 2011.
