As the Chief Environmental Affairs correspondent for NBC News, Anne Thompson has covered a variety of national stories, including filing reports on women in business, the birth of the McCaughey septuplets, the school shooting in Paducah, Ky., the Columbine school shooting and the attack on the World Trade Center. Her reports appear across all platforms of NBC News including “NBC Nightly News,” “The Today Show,” MSNBC on cable and on msnbc.com. In 2010, in covering the Gulf Oil spill which she covered extensively, she had the most on-air screen time of any NBC News correspondent. She’s also been recently elected to the Board of Trustees for the University of Notre Dame.Father Dave talks with Anne Thompson about where her Catholic life meets her career life, the benefits and challenges of both the job and the faith, and the biggest stories of her life, including being at Ground Zero for 9/11.
