Mary Beth Marsden

52, Anchorwoman, WBAL radio; website founder; author When anchorwoman Mary Beth Marsden signed off at WMAR in 2009 after 21 years at the station, she said she was "open to possibilities." Since then, there has been no shortage. Today, she is the afternoon news anchor at WBAL radio, founder of the Real Look Autism website and co-author of "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum," published in April. The latter two were inspired by her daughter, diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. "Leaving Channel 2 basically gave me the luxury of time to think," said Marsden, who was anchoring three newscasts a day when she left. "It was wonderful to feel this free flow of creativity." -- David Zurawik
