Behind the Spotlight: A Conversation with Pete Austin '93, Senior Broadcast Producer at Good Morning America


Pete Austin ’93 began his career the summer before his senior year with a one-week internship at the 1992 National Convention. Since then, he has worked at ABC News—with a brief hiatus in 2000 to explore the dot com world—where he served as a senior producer for Nightline. In 2015, he was named Senior Broadcast Producer at Good Morning America, where he currently line produces the show Monday through Friday. Austin has helped earn two Emmys for ABC in recognition of outstanding breaking news coverage. 




Each year the Club invites 3-4 speakers to share their leadership experiences with the membership. Presenters have included South African President Jacob Zuma, His Royal Highness Prince Turki al Faisal of Saudi Arabia, former CIA Director David Petraeus, former New Jersey Governor Christie Whitman, Dr. Dennis Ausiello, chief of Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Norman Augustine, retired Chairman and CEO of Lockheed Martin Corporation. The goal of this program is to provoke discussion about the personal qualities that create great leaders, and the moral challenges they face.

Roundtable Program





The Roundtable program seeks to bring people of interest to the Club for lively dinner discussions, which are limited to 35 members. Many distinguished scholars have been guests, along with accomplished Ivy parents, graduate members of the Club, and members of the Princeton community. The Roundtable program hosts an average of two guests each month during the academic year.
