As CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin teased during CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage alongside Don Lemon, today she launched a digital series, the American Woman.
The eight-part series profiles women who have shattered ceilings in different industries. Through interviews, Baldwin explores their lives, careers, personal setbacks and all the hurdles these women overcame to accomplish their dreams, notes Variety.
After covering President Trump’s inauguration, Baldwin says she pitched her bosses at CNN on a project that would tell women’s stories. “This needs to be the Year of the Woman for me,” she says she told executives.
“I needed to fill my soul,” she told Variety. “And this project ended up being exactly that for me this year.”
