It’s always refreshing to see high profile women sport their gorgeous gray hair. We wanted to start off the new year by introducing you to Jill Dougherty, the foreign affairs correspondent for CNN. Dougherty, who joined CNN in 1983, was previously CNN’s Moscow bureau chief, named to that post in 1997. She has covered many significant news events in Russia and the former Soviet Union for CNN, including the presidencies of Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin, Russia’s post-Soviet economic transition, the Beslan school massacre, the conflict in Chechnya, the arrest and trial of Yukos Oil company founder Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Georgia’s Rose Revolution and Ukraine’s Orange Revolution.
In addition to her work for CNN, Dougherty has been a correspondent for WMAQ-TV in Chicago and has done freelance assignments for National Public Radio and TIME magazine. She began her career as a broadcaster and writer for Voice of America, U.S.S.R. Division.
Dougherty earned a bachelor’s degree in Russian language and literature from the University of Michigan.
We think Jill is absolutely stunning!
