Who is this current CNN correspondent with his mom (a former tvnewser herself)?

It’s Jeffrey Toobin. TVNewser obtained an email Toobin sent to CNN staff with some publicity photos taken around the time his mother, Marlene Sanders, was a co-anchor for LBJ’s inauguration with Peter Jennings for ABC. Toobin is reporting from Lafayette Park today for CNN. Click continued to see another photo and Toobin’s email…

Forty-four years ago, my mother Marlene Sanders co-anchored LBJ’s inauguration with Peter Jennings for ABC. The other day, she gave me some publicity photos that had been taken around that time with her four-year-old son — me. In a happy bit of symmetry, at least one of the photos appears to have been taken close to where I will be in Lafayette Park. Cheers to all.
