If you’re talking about women who have risen above their beauty to become minds on important issues, then talk about Robin Meade, the beautiful and talented lead anchor on HLN’s morning show Morning Express with Robin Meade. At her age and with the number of years she has invested in this job, it is safe to say that Robin Meade has become something of a star. Maybe you don’t know this, but before she became so terribly good at being a presenter, she was a lot of other things.
Robin Meade Bio, Age
Born on April 21, 1969, as Robin Michelle Meade, the television star personality grew up in New London, Ohio, in a lower-class family, along with her mother and father Linro Meade, who worked in a coal mine but later became pastors in their local church. According to Robin, her life changed for the better after her father became a minister. She attended New London High School, where she graduated and moved to Malone University. She later moved to Ashland University, where she finally graduated in 1991 with a degree in programming and performance with a minor in political science.
Of all the information flying around about Robin Meade’s childhood, not much has been said about her mother, as it seems she was much closer to her father than to her mother. She also has a younger brother whose name is not known.
Robin Meade Career
The beginning of Robin Meade’s media career was hectic as she tried to climb the ladder of success as quickly as possible. She began as a television personality/newscaster at WMFD-TV Mansfield, Ohio, where she was a reporter. From there she moved to WCMH-TV in Columbus and also to WJW-TV in Cleveland as a presenter and reporter. She has hosted on channels such as WSVN-TV and WMAQ-TV, where she had the opportunity to cover the 1996 Olympics, including the Centennial Olympic Park bombing.
Earlier than expected, Robin moved to HNL, formerly known as CNN Headline News, in 2001 where she hosted programs and reports such as Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. One could say that her stay at HLN has been quite productive, as she is now hosting the Morning Express with Robin Meade, along with her colleagues Bob Van Dillen, Mike Galanos, and Jennifer Westhoven. The show has attracted a huge number of viewers and there seems to be no let-up for Robin Meade.
However, before she achieved great fame as a television personality, Robin had participated in a pageant where she became Miss Ohio in 1992. She bet on this success and fought for the Miss America title, but came out a semi-finalist, which in itself was a good performance.
As for her other aspirations, Robin Meade is a published author. Her first book, Morning Sunshine! How to Radiate Confidence and Feel It Too was released in 2009, and as a country musician, her album entitled Brand New Day was quite a hit.
Awards and Recognitions
For her numerous achievements in her chosen fields, Robin has received several recognitions and awards that prove how hard she works. She has worked alongside big stars and celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Phil McGraw, Suze Orman, and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Her book also made the New York Times bestseller list in the “Advice, Instructions and Miscellaneous” section.
In 2002, Lycos recognized Robin as one of the most popular personalities in the television news industry, and in 2004, in an online survey conducted by Playboy.com, she received 40% of the votes to become “Sexiest Newscaster”. The following year, in 2005, she was the opening speaker at the graduation ceremonies of her Alma Mater Ashland University in 2005, and also received the Young Alumnus Award for her achievements in broadcasting.
Earlier, the beautiful host received a regional Emmy Award for her courageous reporting on the collision between a school bus and a train in 1995 in Fox River Grove, Illinois.
