Jane Clayson

Jane Clayson is On Point’s regular guest host.

In the last decade, she has risen to national prominence as co-host of a network morning news program and has covered high-profile national and international stories for both CBS News and ABC News.

Jane began her career at CBS News as co-anchor, with Bryant Gumbel, of The Early Show and anchored coverage of major news events, including the events of September 11th and its aftermath. At CBS, Jane interviewed U.S. Presidents, world leaders as well as the lighter side of American life… interviewing stars from Hollywood and Broadway, the Country Music Awards and the Kennedy Center Honors. Many will remember Jane’s highly acclaimed, exclusive interview with Martha Stewart prior to her federal indictment.

Jane’s work as a CBS News correspondent included exclusive prime time TV magazine specials on Elizabeth Smart and Jessica Lynch for 48 Hours. She has reported for several CBS News broadcasts, including the investigative “Eye on America” segments for the CBS Evening News With Dan Rather. Clayson occasionally anchored the CBS Evening News and was a regular contributor to 48 Hours.

Prior to joining CBS News as co-host of The Early Show, Clayson was a correspondent for ABC News where she reported for “World News Tonight with Peter Jennings” and “Good Morning America.” Although she was based in Los Angeles, ABC News sent Clayson around the world, to cover the NATO air strikes against Kosovo, the refugee crisis in Macedonia and the Indonesian riots and subsequent fall of the Suharto government. Jane’s high profile domestic assignments at ABC News included Senator Robert Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign and O.J. Simpson’s civil trial.

Jane began her broadcast news career as an anchor and reporter with KSL-TV in Salt Lake City. Her news series and documentary on American doctors work on behalf of children in China earned the coveted Edward R. Murrow award for the station. She has been honored with many more journalism awards, including an Emmy. In May of 2004, she was presented an honorary Doctorate degree from Utah State University.

Jane left her network news career in New York City in 2005 to join her husband in Boston and begin a family. She returned to journalism at WBUR with her work at On Point and as host of WBUR’s Radio Boston.
