As the country anticipates Election Day on November 6, Journalism faculty member Carole Simpson has been interviewed multiple times by national news outlets for her insight and expertise on political debates. A former ABC News anchor, she was the first female moderator for a Presidential Debate, in 1992.

In a recent interview on MSNBC, Carole discusses her personal experience as moderator, talks about what it takes to get ready (she had just five days to prepare), and shares her impressions of this year’s debates. Additional highlights include appearing in a Wall Street Journal short documentary titled Presidential Debates: Why the Little Things Matter, a live interview with CNN, an interview with Associated Press, writing for the Boston Globe and The Atlantic, and participating on a Paley Center panel. She also wrote a blog piece for CNN.

Carole is teaching a course at Emerson this semester called “Road to the White House” and will moderate "Behind the Curtain: What Just Happened? What's Next?," a post-election conversation on November 8.
