Anne McDermott, FareCompare Editor-in-Chief
This Emmy award-winning journalist traded national news for global travel issues at FareCompare; as Editor, she assists CEO Rick Seaney with his weekly ABCNews.com column, and joins him in blogging about everything from airline mergers to screaming kids on planes – and even the Great Chihuahua Airlift.
She's used to people getting excited over politics, but says, "That pales in comparison to the rousing debates on Rick's blog over airport security and bag fees." Favorite destination: stepping out of an airport and onto a plane – going anywhere.
