Joan Lunden — Journalist, Working Mother, Entrepreneur

joan-lundenShe greeted us every morning.

Before we had reached for our coffee or hung up our bathrobes, Joan Lunden‘s infectious energy beamed into our homes for nearly two decades on Good Morning America.

The longest running host ever on morning television, Joan entertained, informed and inspired millions of viewers. She took us along as she interviewed presidents and moviestars, rappelled glaciers, bungee-jumped and danced with Vegas showgirls. Her work took her to the most exotic locales, visiting the homes and palaces of kings, queens and superstars.

But through it all, Joan Lunden was first a mother. We watched in awe as she expanded her family without missing a step — Joan has seven children, including two sets of twins.
