My Journey

I've been very lucky to have been able to do some of the things I've done. I've been to more cities than I can count, been to England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Monaco, even been to Japan. I went there to cover the Nagano Winter Olympics, where I ran with the Olympic Torch. I also went to Norway, for the Lillehammer Olympics and Albertville, France for theirs.

For over 15 years at CBS, I was on in the mornings as the weatherman, the entertainment reporter and  even anchored. I first joined CBS in 1987 and was there through all the name changes-The Morning Program to CBS This Morning to The Early Show.

I interviewed, it seemed like everybody, including five Presidents, Bill Clinton, George H.W.Bush, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. I also interviewed Academy Award winners Steven Spielberg, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Whoopi Goldberg, Robert DeNiro and Halle Berry. I talked to music superstars Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Garth Brooks, Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett. The list goes on and on...

After being on the network I moved to Orlando to anchor the local news on WKMG and spend more time with my kids and my wife when I suffered a stroke.

While traveling to my home state of Maryland, I didn't feel quite right and that feeling led me to the hospital.  Two days after that, I collapsed while flying and suffered that stroke.

The aftermath, the therapy, how that experience changed my life, all that I put down in this book "After the Stroke".

I have a new blog, that you're on, it's called Mark McEwen's World. It is full of what I've learned after my stroke, how to lower the risk of having one, stories on places I've been and people I've met. And who knows? There may even be some tales from the CBS days. As they say, "You never know."

One thing I do know? The journey's not over.

Thanks for joining me on this journey, and I hope you'll subscribe to my blog! I'm also on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Also read more at .
