Jane Pauley is AARP’s TODAY show contributor on behalf of “Life Reimagined,” a monthly series on NBC. The segments highlight people age 50+ from across the country who are trying new things whether it’s starting a different career, learning new skills, changing how they live, or finally pursuing their dreams.

As one of broadcasting’s most respected journalists, Jane Pauley has been a familiar face on morning, daytime and primetime television for more than 30 years. She served as the co-host of TODAY from 1976 to 1989, anchored Dateline NBC for more than a decade and in 2004 became the host of her own daytime program, The Jane Pauley Show. Pauley is the recipient of numerous Emmy and other awards, including the prestigious Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Gracie Allen Award from the Foundation of American Women in Radio & Television. Pauley has a contact with Simon and Schuster to publish a book in 2014 that will highlight Life Reimagined stories.

Pauley hopes Life Reimagined will assist, inform and inspire the current and coming crop of 50+ Americans: “AARP knows the future is bright for a generation that’s going to remain healthy and vital for 20, 30, 40 more years. AARP has the information and resources people need throughout their process of reinvention. This can be a time of great productivity, meaningful work, pleasure, creativity and innovation.”
