Meet Mrs. Ailes
Ailes’ award-winning media career began as a researcher and booker for NBC News at Sunrise and Before Hours, a daily business show she co-produced with the Wall Street Journal. She was the first producer hired to launch financial network CNBC, and later was responsible for its on-air merger with FNN. Mrs Ailes became the youngest female Vice President at NBC and was responsible for launching cable network America’s Talking, the forerunner to MSNBC.
Mrs. Ailes also owned and published 2 newspapers in New York’s Hudson Valley. She now lives in Palm Beach, Florida and is involved with non-profit organizations focused on social welfare and workforce development.

One of my favorite organizations is The Walter Hoving Home in Garrison NY. They provide women who suffer from addiction with hope for recovery. I rebuilt a dormitory on the property, which now provides 16 additional beds, a laundry facility, and gathering space.

This was one of my favorite events! This photo is from the Cardinal’s 2013 Christmas luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.
