100 Women We Love: Jenna Wolfe
We are thrilled to present the 2013 list of 100 Women We Love - Including...
More of us will be waking up earlier to catch Jenna Wolfe on Weekend Today, NBC’s morning show on Saturdays and Sundays, since she came out of the closet and announced she’s expecting a baby with her partner, NBC foreign correspondent Stephanie Gosk. Words of admiration and support poured in after Wolfe’s big reveal on March 27—a sign that openly gay broadcast journalists are becoming regular fixtures on TV. Wolfe was named news anchor of Weekend Today in October 2012, but before that, she made her mark as the sports anchor on WABC in New York. Off the air, she’s a daredevil in racquetball, volleyball, skiing, sky-diving and waterskiing. Check her blog, Jenna’s (Baby) Food for Thought on today.com, for her upbeat updates on making it through spin class and U-Hauling through Manhattan, all in her second trimester! “Of all the jaw-dropping, head-turning and eye-popping things I've ever told my friends and family ("I swam with killer sharks," "I jet-packed 30 feet out of the water," "I scaled the tallest building in Canada"), nothing garnered more shock and awe (and, yes, some tears) than when I told people I was pregnant,” Wolfe wrote last March. -JF
