"Your Life Calling"

Jane Pauley: Back on "Today" to Explore Adults Reinventing Their Lives

Her new AARP-produced reports debut March 9 on NBC's "Today" show

Today on Prime Time Radio, host Mike Cuthbert interviews veteran journalist Jane Pauley about "Your Life Calling," her new, AARP-produced series that will appear on NBC's "Today" show and at AARP.org.

"Your Life Calling" features people who are redefining the way they live and work, by learning new things, taking risks, exploring dreams and yearning for more passion and meaning in their lives.

Jane Pauley has spent many years covering the topic of life transitions, going back to her time on "Dateline NBC" and "The Jane Pauley Show." With this AARP series Pauley will highlight the unique stories of people throughout America who have reinvented themselves to find personal and career fulfillment on their own terms. Pauley's reports are about people who've heard their "life calling" and responded by taking a bold first step into the unknown.

Like Pauley herself, most of the people she meets belong to the Baby Boomer generation. "Our country has an untapped resource, and that's us," said Pauley. "The good news is that through the process of reinvention we get purpose, fulfillment and satisfaction. Those benefits are different than the paycheck, or job promotion, or all the other things that used to add up to success.”

About Jane Pauley
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 NBC’s "Today" show 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, Jane earned a public affairs Gracie for "Picking up the Pieces," a TV special about the families of wounded soldiers returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Jane Pauley and her husband, "Doonesbury" cartoonist Garry Trudeau, are the parents of three grown children.

"Your Life Calling" Premieres on Tuesday, March 9
The first segment of "Your Life Calling" will appear on  NBC's "Today" show between 8 and 9 a.m. Pauley will follow her appearance on "Today" with a live online chat at AARP.org from noon to 1 p.m. EST. Pauley and the "reinventor" she's featuring this month will answer your questions.
