During her tenure, she hosted the CNN's New Year's Eve Live segment with Anderson Cooper. She also ran CNN's Digital series American Woman which focused on the success stories of trailblazing women.

Baldwin Was Unhappy With CNN's Male-Dominated Leadership
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the 41-year-old television host has a net worth of $10 million and earns an estimated salary of $4 million annually.
Her healthy net worth and salary are the results of her long-working career and experience.
However, Baldwin seemed unhappy when she talked about male-dominated leadership, the difference in salaries, and gender disparities in the CNN network during an episode of the On the Issues With Michele Goodwin podcast in April 2021.
She stated that the inequality between men and women directly impacted female anchor's salaries, as the highest-paid anchors on the network were majorly men.
"I’ve been anchoring for 10-plus years, the majority of that time two hours in the afternoon," she said. "And in that time, you know, the most influential anchors on our network, the highest-paid, are men."
In 2018, The Wrap even reported that CNN had more male anchors than female anchors on on-air roles compared to its competitor networks.
Not only that, Baldwin discussed how no females were included in the list of the 100 highest-paid athletes in the world during an episode of CNN Newsroom in June 2018.
At the end of the segment, she encouraged everyone to stand up for their worth.

She pursued her school education at The Westminster School, a private college-preparatory school. Later, she earned a double degree in Journalism and Spanish from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2001.

Following that, Baldwin made a significant breakthrough in her career when she joined CNN in 2008 as a reporter. Afterward, she was promoted to the position of news anchor in 2010.
One of her remarkable works was co-anchoring CNN's special coverage of the final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-135) from Kennedy Space Center on July 8, 2011.
