Interview with Peggy Wehmeyer
In 1989, Peter Jennings pulled Peggy Wehmeyer out of local television in Dallas to join ABC World News Tonight, where she broke ground as the nation's first network religion correspondent. For the next seven-and-a-half years, American viewers followed Peggy's award-winning push for truth into the faith-and-culture issues of U.S. presidents, gay marriage, prisoners, Muslim clerics, Rabbis, abortion, school shootings, academicians, missionaries and in a particular coup, her hour-long special with the McCaughey parents and their new septuplets.
In 2002, Peggy joined World Vision to help found and host the World Vision Reporta weekend newsmagazine and daily feature show on issues and events affecting the world's poorest people. (WVR currently airs on more than 300 Christian radio stations; all programs are available at WorldVisionRadio.org)
