    Ann Compton is a distinguished and highly respected veteran of the White House press corps. She joined ABC News in 1973 and was the first woman assigned to cover the White House by a television network. From her front seat at the White House for ABC News, Compton covered seven presidents  as well as innumerable life-changing and globe-altering events—from the end of the Cold War to 9/11 to the political dramas that made the daily headlines. With her personal access for over four decades she is well equipped to provide audiences a historical perspective of the presidency and insights into today’s global events and daily headlines.
