Major at MMC
Not one to let a good opportunity slip away, Michelle Lamb ’02 made a powerful first impression when a guest speaker visited MMC her freshman year.
“Bob Waldman, an executive producer for CBS News, spoke to my class. I approached him afterward with my resumé—yes, I came prepared—and expressed interest in an internship. We chatted, I applied, and a few months later I secured a position with the CBS News summer program. I was so excited,” she says.
Through the internship, Lamb worked on numerous shows and news segments alongside broadcasting legends, including Dan Rather. This experience led to a career in production before more recently becoming a TV and radio personality.
Lamb can be heard on iHeartmedia and seen on television as a true-crime reporter for programs including Fatal Attraction (TV One) and Snapped: Killer Couples (Oxygen Network). She enjoys hiking, traveling, and swimming, and also devotes time and resources as a volunteer, supporting soup kitchens and clothing drives.
Reflecting on her life, career, and what lies ahead, Lamb says, “I think most of us are afraid of the unknown, but with positive thoughts, faith, and looking for that silver lining, you can make the best of any situation.”
