Jim Dolan has been a reporter with Eyewitness News since 1986.
Dolan knew he wanted to be a reporter in New York before he finished grammar school. Since then, he has reported on virtually every major story around the world -- the LA riots, the Oklahoma City bombing, civil wars and famine in Africa, the death of Princess Diana, the Persian Golf War, the War in Afghanistan, and the Intifada in the Middle East.
Though he has reported from more than 30 countries on five continents, Dolan has always had a great love for New York because there's nothing like reporting nightly on neighborhood stories close to home, and close to the heart.
Dolan is a second generation Irish American, and native New Yorker.
Dolan’s grandparents came to the U.S from Co. Cork.
Maureen Dowd, winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary, became a columnist on The New York Times Op-Ed page in 1995 after having served as a correspondent in the paper's Washington bureau since 1986.
She has covered four presidential campaigns and served as White House correspondent. She also wrote a column, "On Washington," for The New York Times Magazine.
Dowd joined The New York Times as a metropolitan reporter in 1983. She began her career in 1974 as an editorial assistant for The Washington Star, where she later became a sports columnist, metropolitan reporter and feature writer. When the Star closed in 1981, she went to Time magazine.
Born in Washington, D.C., Dowd received a BA degree in English literature from Catholic University (Washington, D.C.) in 1973.
Dowd’s father, a police detective, came from Co. Clare, where the family visited many times. Her mother was a proud Irish American, Peggy Meenehan, who led a demonstration at the British Embassy after Bloody Sunday when 14 were shot by British forces in Derry.
