The 38 year-old American journalist is currently host of a program on the re-launched network called 'Our America' where she explores social issues that are prevalent in modern day America. This series looks at polygamy, sex trafficking, extreme parenting styles and amateur porn, reports CNN. Talking to the Cnn site, Ling said "Porn is a multi-billion dollar industry and the world of porn is undeniable. So for me, while there are tremendous uncomfortable moments, I was also riveted and absolutely fascinated by this world."
On the episode that explores parenting styles, Ling was equally enthusiastic, stating "It's a very fascinating look into different approaches to parenting. We spent time with four families who have completely different styles, they are literally shaping these little people into adults."
Ling's breakthrough came when joining Channel One News in 1991 aged just 18 and she hit a high profile when reporting on the 9/11 plane attacks. On Own she now feels she's found a home, insisting "I actually feel more strongly about it now than ever. I don't think I would be able to do any other show on any other network." A lot of that is down to the input of veteran Oprah Winfrey, "Oprah watches everything and will sometimes give notes. She is very active in the process."
Lisa Ling, the American journalist and television personality, who yesterday spoke on 'The View' about her recent miscarriage, has been confirmed as the host of this year's 'California Hall of Fame', reports the Sacramento Press. The red carpet event, which will be broadcast live on 14th December 2010, will see Barbra Streisand, Betty White, and Facebook creator MARK ZUCKERBURG recognised for their 'legendary achievements'.
37-year-old Ling will be joined by news reporter and correspondent JASON KENNDY as co-host for the ceremony, which is set to be held at the California Museum. The other 2010 inductees include the 'Avatar' director James Cameron, country music legend Merle Haggard, the author ANNE LAMOTT and the artist WAYNE THIEBAUD. Inductees are honoured for their achievements in the areas of politics, activism, philanthropy, sports, business, entertainment, technology, fitness, and literature.
All recipients of this year's awards will personally receive the 'Spirit of California' medal from Arnold Schwarzenegger, and First Lady Maria Shriver, and guests at this year's ceremony are expected to include Clint Eastwood and his wife Dina Eastwood. The event will be broadcast live on the Comcast Hometown Network.
Lisa Ling, the 37-year-old talk show presenter and former host of the 'The View', has opened up about the pain she felt after losing her baby just two months into the pregnancy, reports the UK's Daily Mail. Ling and her oncologist husband PAUL SONG were given the terrible news six months ago, following a routine hospital scan.
Ling returned to 'The View' in an effort to break the stigma attached to talking about miscarriage. She revealed how she felt like "an incredible failure" after learning she had lost the baby, and added, "I felt so alone when it happened". The talk-show host, who fell pregnant shortly after the couple began trying for a baby, said she began reading blogs after suffering the miscarriage, saying, "I wasn't ready to tell any of my friends about it. I jumped online, I started pouring through blogs. Once I did start talking to friends, I realized that it's so pervasive. Almost every one of my friends has had one at one time or another but nobody talks about it".
Lisa, who says she still hopes to have children in the future, is set to star in the 2011 documentary entitled, 'Miss Representation', about the un-representation of woman in positions of power in America. The film also features the actress and writer Margaret Cho.
