Kaylee Hartung Unplugged

Kaylee Hartung

Earlier this year CBS News began a new Web-only video feature called Washington Unplugged, a weekly, 15-minute program hosted by veteran newsman Bob Schieffer. More recently, they’ve added a new segment called “Unplugged Under 40,” which is hosted by Washington and Lee alumna Kaylee Hartung of the Class of 2007. Kaylee is Schieffer’s assistant on Face the Nation and visited W&L with her boss last spring when he spoke to journalism students. With Unplugged Under 40, she’s getting her shot in front of the camera and has done some really interesting interviews with a variety of up-and-comers in Washington. Some of her interviews have included the 28 year-old executive editor of DC magazine, “The Washingtonian,” Garrett Graff, White House Deputy Press Secretary Jen Psaki, 28-year-old Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock, and chef and restaurateur Spike Mendelsohn. Be sure to check out the view comments left at the end of those videos, too.
