6 Things About Daryn
You look so much like….
Yes, I used to be that anchor on CNN.
Those were 12 amazing years anchoring breaking news,
traveling Africa with U2’s Bono,
covering Oscars’ Red Carpet.
If you love doing news, and a I did, there is no better place to do it than CNN.
Why would I leave a gig like that?
When they tell you they’re not going to renew your contract after 12 years, you kind of get the idea that your card key won’t be working much longer in the CNN Parking Deck.
How much do you miss that life?
I’d be still sitting there in that anchor seat if they hadn’t shown me the door AND I haven’t missed it for a second.
So what have you done since?
Oh, not much. Only launched this website, a syndicated newspaper column, contributed to CBS Sunday Morning, hosted a national radio show, written two books, produced and hosted an award-winning documentary, done a bunch of corporate speaking events.
I’m also now doing a lot of storytelling video work for companies, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. I’d love to come up with some great storytelling plans for you. Let’s talk.
But what about the important stuff?
Oh yeah, I got married! Miracles never cease. Yep, married a single dad whose first wife passed away and adopted his daughter. That makes me a mom, too. My Little Sister in the Big Brother Big Sister also lives with us, as well, rounding out the family I always wanted.
The girls are in college now and we are enjoying Empty Nest life.

What about the wacko animals?
8 chickens in the backyard more than earn their keep with fresh eggs every day.
One Thing I Know For Sure:
You can’t screw up the right one; Can’t make the wrong one work. This is true in love, jobs, and finding a home.
