Emily Rooney recently joined us on the Hilltop to speak to our Knights enrolled in Mr. Donahue's history classes. Rooney is a journalist, TV talk show, radio host, and news producer. She is currently host of the weekly program Beat the Press on WGBH-TV. From 1997 to 2014, she was also the host of Greater Boston and the Emily Rooney Show on WGBH radio. Before then, Rooney was at Fox Network in New York from 1994 to 1997. She was executive producer of World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, and at WCVB-TV in Boston from 1979 to 1993, as news director for three years.

We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to host Emily Rooney on the Hilltop. It was a great day to be a Knight!
