From the Fall 2013 issue of Deerfield Magazine: "I'm grateful to call myself a "Deerfield girl." We were encouraged to be strong and independent. I think of a few of my role models: Ms. "Mac," Ms. Lyons, Ms. Valk, Ms. Loftus. Smart, confident, kind, and funny. I always looked up to them even when they did pile on hours of homework. They taught the Deerfield values that still stick with me today: preparation, commitment, and teamwork."
From the New York Times: "NBC said on Wednesday that Don Nash, the show’s executive producer since 2012, would leave and would be succeeded by Libby Leist, a veteran “Today” producer with deep ties to Washington and a strong working relationship with Savannah Guthrie, a co-anchor. The move makes Ms. Leist the first woman to hold the top producing job for the show’s first two hours."
