Smokin' RED HOT Snow ...

Kate Snow has been the anchor of the weekend edition of "Good Morning America" since the show launched in September 2004.

Based at ABC News' headquarters in New York, Snow also contributes to various ABC News broadcasts as a correspondent. She frequently reports for "Good Morning America," "World News Tonight" and "Nightline."

A political junkie with a deep interest in world events, Snow has covered a wide range of stories for ABC News. Over the years, she has reported on everything from the economy to immigration, medical advances to Oscar fashions, energy policy to Katrina evacuees. She has traveled to remote Africa, covered conflict in Lebanon and hiked the Badlands for "Good Morning America's" "Seven Wonders" series. And Snow has conducted exclusive interviews with newsmakers from President Barack Obama to billionaire Richard Branson, from Senator Ted Kennedy to Beyonce and Bono.

Snow has covered several presidential elections in her career. In 2008, she covered the campaign of Hillary Clinton from start to finish. For some eighteen months, Snow did double duty as a weekend anchor and the lead correspondent on that campaign during the week. She also covered the Democratic convention in Denver and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's bid for the vice presidency. In the summer of 2008, Snow won kudos for conducting the first interview with former President Bill Clinton in the wake of his wife's failed White House run.

In 2004, Snow was the first network correspondent to travel with Sen. John Kerry during his campaign for the White House. She also covered President George W. Bush's re-election campaign that year.

Snow joined ABC News in July 2003 as "Good Morning America's" White House correspondent. In the summer of 2004 she moved to New York to launch the weekend broadcast.

Prior to joining ABC News, Snow was a correspondent with CNN. She covered the Sept. 11 attacks from the rooftop of a church near the U.S. Capitol, was the first television journalist on the scene of the anthrax attacks and spent weeks covering the 2000 recount in Florida. Prior to her Washington assignment, Snow was based in Atlanta with CNN Newsource. In that role, she covered the Kosovo conflict from Albania and Macedonia.

Snow began her news career as a reporter with KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, N.M., where she also anchored the station's weekend morning show. She has also worked for National Public Radio and NBC Radio.
