Jeanne moos

Jeanne Moos is a national news correspondent for CNN. She is based at the network's studios in Manhattan. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Moos originally wanted to pursue a career in print journalism, but while attending Syracuse University (where she earned a bachelor's degree in public communication), she decided to go into the television business instead. In 1976, she landed her first major job in television at WPTZ in Plattsburgh, New York, as the station's first female correspondent. During her tenure at WPTZ, she covered local and national stories, including the 1980 winter Olympic Games in Lake Placid, New York. In 1981, she joined CNN as a reporter. It was there that she covered stories ranging from political corruption to the United Nations during the 1991 Gulf War. In the 1990s, Moos began to report on unusual and off-beat soft news stories, which is her current trademark. In 1995, she began a series of reports called "Making The MOOSt Of It." Today Moos continues to file reports for CNN in a segment called "Moost Unusual," seen during The Situation Room and during Showbiz Tonight on CNN Headline News.

1. Syracuse University Colleges/University

Syracuse University, commonly referred to as Syracuse, 'Cuse, or SU, is a private research university located in Syracuse, New York, United States. Its roots can be traced back to Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1832, which also later founded Genesee College. Following several years of debate over relocating the college to Syracuse, the university was founded independent of the college in 1870. Since 1920, the university has identified itself as nonsectarian, although it maintains a relationship with The United Methodist Church. Syracuse was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1966 but withdrew its membership in 2011 due to diverging views in evaluating criteria between the University and the AAU.
