Tom with the Class of 1965
After graduating from Gilmour in 1996, Amy Farrar Walsh earned a bachelor of art in communications from Miami University. She began her career in the media field as an intern at CNN’s “Late Edition” with Wolf Blitzer in Washington, D.C. From there, she went to work on the program “Crossfire” as a researcher. In 2003, Walsh moved to Chicago to work for “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” She spent the past eight years booking authors and other distinguished guests for the show, including former President and First Lady George and Laura Bush and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. With the last episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” having aired last May, Walsh accepted a position booking speakers for October’s “Chicago Ideas Week.” It is a week-long event with over 200 speakers from around the world. She also is focusing on her daughter, Ainsley, born in Sept. 2010 to Walsh and her husband, Mike, an associate partner with the Chicago design firm PSA Partners.
