Probst’s direct, engaging style and incisive interview skills encourage guests to open up about their lives and share fascinating stories.
Coleman's long, successful career in daytime television began in 1994 when she joined the staff of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" as an associate producer. During her 16 years with the show, she held positions with increasing levels of responsibility, including producer and supervising producer.
As a senior staff member at Harpo Productions, Coleman helped lead the most successful team in daytime television, produced hundreds of shows, and oversaw some of “The Oprah Winfrey Show's” most memorable moments, including Oprah's historic interview with Nelson Mandela, her trip to Auschwitz with Elie Wiesel, and the moving Season 25 special featuring 200 adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse who bravely came forward. Also, she led the team behind the surprise "flash mob" dance on Chicago's Michigan Avenue and Oprah's Ultimate Australian Adventure.
Prior to joining "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Coleman worked her way through the ranks at Fox News Chicago, from assignment editor to news producer, ultimately producing documentaries and sweeps series for the Special Projects division. Before that, she was a news writer, editorial assistant and video journalist with "CNN Headline News" in Atlanta.
Coleman holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Drama from Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania. She and her husband, Neil, live in Los Angeles with their two children.
