Sally Sterling Quinn is an American author and journalist, who writes about religion for a blog at The Washington Post.
Born in Savannah, Georgia, Quinn attended and graduated from Smith College in 1963.
After college, Quinn began her journalism at The Washington Post with very little experience: reportedly called by Ben Bradlee after a report of her pajama party in celebration of the election to Congress of Barry Goldwater Jr.
In August 1973, Quinn tried her hand at television, joining CBS News reporter Hughes Rudd as co-anchor of the CBS Morning News. Ninety minutes before her television debut on August 6, 1973, Quinn collapsed while trying to fight the flu.
She was critical of President Bill Clinton during the impeachment trial, stating that he had “fouled the nest”.
Quinn had a long-standing animus for the Clintons, possibly due to a perceived snub by First Lady Hillary Clinton, who declined a party invitation from Quinn.
By February 24, 2010, the Post canceled her column, which had been appearing in the religion section of the print edition. This was Quinn’s last column for the printed newspaper.
Quinn continued to write for the Post’s OnFaith blog at limited through 2015. She remains listed as a contributor.
