Stamford native Margaret Brennan, senior foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, has been picked as the next moderator of “Face the Nation,” the network’s prestigious Sunday morning public affairs show and one of the most influential venues in American politics.

Her new role, announced by CBS on Thursday, Feb. 22 makes Brennan, 37, the only woman currently serving as a solo anchor of a major Sunday political affairs show.

Brennan succeeds John Dickerson, who left “Face the Nation” in January to replace Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning.

Brennan, who graduated with honors from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich before attending the University of Virginia, drew praise for an interview she conducted with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that aired this past Sunday on "60 Minutes."

Since joining CBS News in 2012, Brennan has led coverage of major international stories.
