Dana Bash is known as an American journalist and news anchor. She is most famous for being the chief political correspondent for CNN.
Dana Ruth Schwartz was born on June 15, 1971, in Montvale, New Jersey. Her father was a producer for ABC News and a senior broadcast producer for Good Morning America. Her mother is a Jewish studies educator who has authored many books like 'A Touch of the Sacred' and 'Jewish Moral Virtues. Dana has a brother who is a producer of video news and video public relations under DMS Productions.
Dana attended Pascack Hills High School. Dana went on to study at George Washington University, where she graduated cum laude and earned her bachelor's degree in political communications. During her time at George Washington University, Dana was an intern at NBC, CBS, and CNN.
Dana married Jeremy Bash, the former CIA chief of staff, in 1998. The couple was married for nine years until they got divorced in 2007. After her divorce from Jeremy, Dana married a fellow CNN correspondent, John King. John was born a Roman Catholic but converted to Judaism before marrying Dana. The couple was married in 2008 at a ceremony in Cape Cod. Dana and John had a son, Jonah Frank King, in 2011. When their son was born, John sent an email to his colleagues stating that their son will be named after the two heroes of the couple's life, John's mom, Joan, and Dana's grandfather, Frank.
Unfortunately, the couple separated in 2012 and finalized their divorce that same year. King has a son and a daughter from a previous marriage that also ended in divorce. Rumors claiming that John was having an affair with another one of the correspondents at CNN came out after the couple announced their separation. The couple started living in separate houses even before their baby was one year old, but they could still effectively act out their parenting roles in their son's life. Dana said that they would continue to co-parent their son with maximum professionalism when questioned about the divorce. She also requested the media to respect their privacy during those difficult times.
She has many admirers in her career, and many of her fans follow her on Facebook and Twitter. Bash continues to try and balance time with her family and reporting the news. She said in an interview that she tries to FaceTime with her son before he goes to sleep; Bash mentioned that she FaceTimed with him from the floor of the Republican convention. She stood by the VIP box and held up her phone so that her son could look on as Donald Trump's kids stood. She said, "he was like, 'Wow, that's cool."
Bash's producer described her as the queen of multitasking, but she was humbling in saying that she often makes mistakes. During the elections, she said that this is very unusual for her to be away for more than two weeks, but she had to bring her son and his nanny for a couple of days to the convention when he was young. But now, he would rather be with his friends or at camp.
Dana Bash was initially an editor at the Washington Bureau, planning and coordinating CNN's Capitol Hill and the State Department coverage. She handled essential issues such as Social Security and Medicare. Bash also co-produced the show 'Late Edition' along with Evans, Novak, and Frank Sesno. She worked in "Inside Politics Weekend." She covered the presidential and vice-presidential campaigns in the year 2000. She was made the congressional correspondent of CNN in 2008 and has covered the US congress since 2006.
Dana Bash has covered many exciting landmark decisions that have changed the political scenario in the United States. Dana Bash was one of the first reporters to cover the news concerning the resignation of Senator Jim Jeffords from the Republican Party in 2001. This move was a monumental one that gave the Democrats an upper hand in the US Senate. She was one of the first to report about Mitt Romney's decision to stop his campaign. She received the Dirksen Award for her coverage of the Government's secretive interception of the translations from the terrorist group, Al Qaeda.
Bash won a Peabody Award in the category of Best Political Team on Television. She also covered the evacuation of Capitol Hill in the wake of the September 11 attacks.
Her career has had many significant milestones. Bash played a crucial role in CNN's 2016 presidential primary debates, serving as a moderator in six of the seven primetime primary debates. During this time, Bash conducted in-depth interviews with many candidates, including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and Marco Rubio. Bash also continues to regularly serve as a moderator for CNN's political town halls.
Bash revealed that she received many pretty gross comments from male senators during her career as a congressional reporter. She was saying that they openly discussed her weight on multiple occasions. She continued to say that maybe only older men acted like this. She mentioned that after she had her son, she got some comments about getting her figure back. Bash believes having more women in elected office matters because "Women tend to be good problem solvers and listeners, which is sorely needed in politics." She went on to say, "the fact that there are more women than ever in politics is a large contributing factor to Congress addressing how sexual harassment is dealt with on Capitol Hill." On May 12, 2018, Bash received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire.
