1 thought on “Molly Hunter (NBC News) Biography”

  1. An outstanding reporter with her own amicable style, Molly has undoubtedly changed the face of international reporting for the average American viewer. When Molly is on television people take notice, and she educates them in a ‘somewhat’ interesting manner, i.e. with articulated (kind-mannered)) efficiently to detail, and without the hype and ‘sensationalism’ attributed to very many others. She tells “her” story, “her” way and that is “her” hallmark.
    Raised in England where international television news takes priority, I, as a current 78-year-old, would, without her accent, assume she was working for the BBC. Currently living in Texas we are bombarded daily with NBC individuals who are paid extremely high salaries for ‘feeding out’ “trollop” on a daily basis and educating “nobody”.
    Ms Molly is a ‘gem’ who should be higher up on the Totem Pole’. Besides, she’s very pretty to look at, far prettier than Lester.
