Lead new anchor of HLN Robin Meade recently returned to Chicago for the premiere of CNN's original series Chicagoland and the visit brought back a flood of memories. Chicago was one of the places that Robin Meade learned about reporting and as the former Miss Ohio remembers, it was the school of hard knocks as you learned to swim or sink and there was no in between. Fortunately she adapted and thrived in the fast pace environment and that ability to adapt to change is going to help her continue to thrive as the face of HLN's morning show as the network undergoes a complete rebranding under the leadership of Worldwide President Jeff Zucker.
Robin Meade at HLN has been a consistent user of social media for several years and her willingness to embrace the change makes her someone that Worldwide President Jeff Zucker may be considering for a post that will provide her an even greater viewing audience. She is considered one of the most personable and attractive lead anchors on morning television and with the social media being in her DNA she is someone that entertainment and news insiders could envision connecting with the younger generation.
Robin Meade is an reporter who understands the importance of providing quality, reliable information and also acting as a "mood enhancer" because in many situations she is the first face that people see in the morning and the last television person they will see before they leave for work and as such, she needs to help them leave with a smile.
Do not be surprised if Robin Meade's appearance at Chicagoland is the first of many introductions to national primetime audiences in preparation for a move to a primetime anchor role.
