Robin Meade shares stories from behind the camera

You know her as the perky anchor of HLN’s "Morning Express," but Robin Meade also has a musical side.

Meade spent her childhood singing in her father’s church, and as she told CNN in a recent interview, "I thought that everybody could sing."

While she's currently a journalist with music as a side career, as a high school senior she had no idea what path to pursue.

“I remember telling my mom that I was filling out a form to enter the county junior miss program my senior year,” Meade recalled, “and I wrote down my goal was to be a renowned broadcast news anchor and follow in the footsteps of Diane Sawyer because I knew she had been America’s junior miss. My mom was like, ‘Oh, honey, why don’t we write down something a little more realistic?’”

Watch her interview above to find out who unwittingly put her on the path to become a broadcaster, and what’s been her most difficult story to cover.

    i do not know anything about your personal life,but i believe her famliy has a deep faith in the fact,it is in my faith that she is just and meek,because her focus is the same as my mine when she reads stories on camera.if the eye is light and window to soul,then i saw she had the same emotions i did on each news story.things that made me happy did the same to her,and stories that upset me did the same to her.surely ther is a ressurrected body for this lady,which is promised to all just people with water baptism,in yeashua's name amen.mister shannon ray blake....................p.s.. even if i am blotted out of the book of life,my faith and works have been tried by the fires of truth and i fear no spirit in the valley of death.
