I remember when Lisa Ling stopped by our office for a photo shoot many many moons ago. It was early, but Lisa was bubbly and chatty, immensely likeable from the moment she walked in the door. As we were getting her primped and prettied up, her good friend, local news reporter Gordon Tokumatsu stopped by and the two allowed us to take some cute photos of them horsing around.
Lisa had just left her post on “The View” back in 2003 to work as a correspondent for National Geographic’s Explorer. Since then, Lisa has traveled all over the globe, reporting on topics as varied as the most dangerous gang in the world and gave us a rare look inside the adoption process in China. Lisa looks back at 25 years of National Geographic’s multiple award-winning globetrotting show in “Explorer: 25 Years,” which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.
