Amy Walsh

AM Guest Booker

Amy is thrilled to return to cable news after helping build and cultivate world-renowned Chicago Ideas Week — the country’s largest, most approachable ideas festival which 35,000 attend annually. Prior to CIW, Amy was a seasoned booker for the final eight years of The Oprah Winfrey Show. She booked presidents, authors, Olympians, comedians, musicians and everyday, normal people for some of the highest rated episodes. Amy launched her television career at CNN in Washington D.C. helping the irascible pundits duke it out on the nightly political debate show Crossfire. She can often be found running around Chicago with her husband and three little redheads in tow.
