Gloria Murry Ford has been a member of the communications industry her entire adult life, from a roving news reporter with radio and TV stations in her native Wichita (KFH Radio, KFDI Radio, and KARD-TV) to WJAR-TV in Providence, Rhode Island.
From Providence, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1980 to work for CNN as their correspondent covering the South. She was one of the most prolific reporters covering the Missing and Murdered Children story, breaking news, for example, that microscopic evidence determined that the killer was black.
Also, while at CNN, she met CBS News reporter Sam Ford as they were on an airplane traveling to a story in Tampa, Florida. And since that day in 1980, they were together 41 years.
