Do you remember Carol Lin? When she left CNN, she was anchoring the Weekend edition of Newroom at 10pm.
Need a refresher? Well, I dug this out of the archives this evening, so here is a clip from the night that she signed off from CNN for the last time:
An excerpt below of her parting words (from the CNN Transcript) on December 30, 2006:
Nearly four years ago, I just wanted a good war to cover and a chance to tell your story. Well, be careful for what you wish for. I had Kosovo, the Middle East, Afghanistan, and 9/11.
And then there was the unexpected battle and the one that I lost. My husband's cancer.
So many people have asked me what's next? Well, one of projects is a blog book that will serve as an online investigation into our healthcare system. Who gets the cures and who doesn't and the heroes who held our hands.
She recently started a website: Carol Lin Reporting. It's still in the early stages of development, but she's still looking for stories to tell.
