How Alex Wallace Got Her Start

By Brian 

Brian Williams writes about Alex Wallace‘s promotion:

“My favorite story about her is that she applied to the London bureaus of all three television networks on the day she graduated from college. The problem came when her ship came in: She received offers from both CBS and NBC. What to do? How to choose? She accepted both. A day shift at one, a night shift at the other. That’s what I tell people about Alex.”

He adds: “She held a number of big jobs at CBS News before we managed to steal her away, and while a number of her front-office responsibilities will continue in this job, we are all thrilled that Alex was able to take the position John Reiss once held.”
