Mara Schiavocampo is one of the most prominent television personalities in the country. A fixture of daytime TV, the four-time Emmy Award winning news correspondent has appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The View, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Chew, and more. Mara is also a best-selling author, chart-topping podcast host, and sought after public speaker.
A celebrated journalist, Mara has covered many of the biggest news stories of the last decade, most recently as a correspondent for ABC News’ Good Morning America.
Prior to ABC News, Mara spent six years as an anchor and correspondent at NBC News and MSNBC. She has also worked as an international contributor and commentator for numerous news outlets and websites, including Current TV, Yahoo!, NPR and more.
Mara is a wellness enthusiast whose weight-loss memoir “Thinspired” (Simon & Schuster, 2014) documents her journey of losing 90 pounds after the birth of her first child. She followed this success by launching the "Motivated" podcast in 2017, debuting at #1 on the iTunes charts, and becoming one of the most popular podcasts about health and wellness.
Mara's tongue-twisting last name comes from her multi-cultural background. The daughter of an African-American mother and Italian father, she holds dual Italian-American citizenship, speaks fluent Italian, and can get by in Spanish and French. Mara is an avid traveler, and has lived in Somalia, Italy and the Philippines.
But by far the best part of Mara's life is as "Mrs. Porter", a wife, and mom to two rambunctious kids (and one adorable fur baby) in Harlem, New York. Oh yeah, she's also obsessed with shoes and Beyonce.
