She has also hosted the program ‘Both Sides’ on Court TV, as well as served as a legal analyst on ‘Anderson Cooper 360°.’ An attorney by profession, she ventured into television after several years of a successful legal career. Before taking up television as a full-time career, she held a high-profile job as a prosecuting attorney in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and had even served as an assistant District Attorney in San Francisco for four years. Once married to prominent California politician Gavin Newsom, she first came into limelight due to her husband’s high visibility in the media.
