She worked for CBS for four years, contributing to 60 Minutes and the CBS Evening News.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Ward said of CNN, “No other organization has the same scope and depth and recognition across the world. And no other organization devotes the same amount of resources and air time to the most important international stories of our time.”
