76. Isabelle Kumar: 'Anchor' your Career
Show Notes

No matter your profession, chances are you watch the news on your TV, laptop or phone. But what about the person sharing the news story? What’s their story? How do they get so confident to speak in front of millions of people on national television, night after night? 

My guest today is Isabelle Kumar, who has been a news anchor and producer at places like CNN, Reuters and EuroNews. We have so much to learn from Isabelle, who has interviewed global leaders including the heads of state of Russia, Iran, Colombia, Brazil, Jordan, to sports icons like Mike Tyson, fashion icons like JP Gautier, Karl Lagerfeld and so many more.

In this conversation, Isabelle shares the unlikely fashion she landed an internship at CNN and how it changed the entire trajectory of her career, and how she worked her way from producing the news to becoming a news anchor. She also shares two of her most memorable high profile interviews, and trust me, you don’t want to miss this!
