Lisa Ling (no, not Lucy Liu!), who showed the world that a 20-something could be intelligent and beautiful with her stint on The View, is taking her reporting to ABC’s Nightline.
The 34-year-old TV personality, who left her cushy job at The View in 2002 to host the gritty, gravitas-building National Geographic Ultimate Explorer (and eventually becoming a special correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show), will appear in her first segment for the late-night hard news program on Thursday, according to the New York Times.
“I have wanted to work with Lisa for a long time,” James Goldston, executive producer of Nightline, said in a statement. “She is a terrific journalist with a very distinctive style that fits really well with the Nightline sensibility.”
