Catherine Mackin TV Personality

Catherine Patricia "Cassie" Mackin (28 August 1939 - 20 November 1982) was a pioneer woman journalist in United States television network broadcasting. In 1976 she became the first woman to regularly anchor an evening network newscast alone. In the early 1970s she anchored a WRC-TV newscast and in 1972 became NBC's first female correspondent to serve as a floor reporter at the national political conventions. Mackin was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She won a four-year scholarship to the Institute of Notre Dame before entering Washington College in 1956. A year later she transferred to the University of Maryland at College Park. While a student there, she worked for the now defunct Free State Press, a weekly paper published in suburban Washington, D.C. She graduated magna cum laude in June 1960 with a B.A. degree in English and minors in economics and history. After graduation, Mackin obtained a position at the Baltimore News-American. Beginning as a general assignment reporter, she held a variety of positions before she left the paper in 1963. Between 1960 and 1962 she made guest appearances on both a Baltimore news panel show and on a morning variety show.
