AARP's "Life Reimagined TODAY" Host

Jane Pauley

As one of broadcasting's most respected journalists, Jane Pauley has been a familiar face on morning, daytime and prime-time television for more than 30 years.

She served as the co-host of Today from 1976 to 1989, anchored Dateline NBC for more than a decade, and in 2004 became the host of her own daytime program, The Jane Pauley Show. That same year, Pauley published her memoir, Skywriting: A Life Out of the Blue, which became a New York Times bestseller.

Pauley has received numerous Emmys and other awards, including the prestigious Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Gracie Allen Award for Outstanding Achievement by American Women in Radio & Television. Last year, in her first collaboration with AARP, Pauley earned a public affairs Gracie for "Picking up the Pieces," a TV special about the families of soldiers returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, Pauley is a highly regarded advocate for mental health, children’s health, and education issues. She and her husband, Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau, are the parents of three grown children.

Having undergone her own "reinventions" in her work and life, Pauley says, "I've been thinking about this subject for 20 years." Her hope is that "Life Reimagined TODAY" will assist, inform, and inspire the current and coming crop of age-50+ Americans. "AARP knows the future is bright for a generation that's going to remain healthy and vital for 10, 20, 30, 40 more years. AARP has the information and resources people need throughout their process of reinvention," says Pauley. "The years after 50 can be a time of great productivity, meaningful work, pleasure, creativity, and innovation. It's a huge opportunity."
