A Legendary Career. An Inspirational Message

Say the word “survivor” and you are describing Sandra Hughes. She spent over 38 years broadcasting on television … and lives to tell about it!

Now she is ready to speak to your group about her experiences including highs and lows … good and bad … scary and exciting…thrilling and chilling. Sandra has stories from all around the state, the nation and the world.
She anchored the evening news and the morning show on a CBS affiliate. She co-hosted PM Magazine and hosted her own live daily talk show. In fact, Sandra was the first African-American to host PM Magazine in the southeast region and the first African-American woman to host her own talk show in North Carolina.

At your next event, Sandra can give a behind-the-scenes look at interviews from world leaders to celebrities to governmental officials to victims of tragedies to the homeless. Her motivational stories are presented with a sense of humor and are meant to inspire present and future leaders.

Now, over 38 years later, Sandra Hughes is recognized as an award-winning journalist. She has numerous honors that attest to her efforts, including a letter from the President of the United States, Barack Obama. North Carolina A&T State University presented Sandra with an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities where she is now teaching journalism courses.

“Sandra served as emcee of our Women to Women Celebration Luncheon in November 2011. This event drew nearly 1,000 women throughout the Triad. Women to Women received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the event — to which Sandra lent an air of professionalism and pizazz! In an engaging and entertaining way, Sandra kept our program focused and on-track and maintained the attention of our audience. Plus, Sandra is delightful to work with!”
