CNN anchors' better halves: Who are the husbands and wives of CNN's biggest names?

Behind every great man or woman...!

CNN's lineup of anchors and reporters includes a few noted bachelors, perhaps most notably Anderson Cooper, who has never married. But many of the newsmen and women have powerful spouses by their sides — we just don't see them on camera.

"The Situation Room" anchor Wolf Blitzer is one of the network's longest-married staffers. The 71-year-old wed Lynn Greenfield in 1973, so the couple is just a few years shy of their 50th anniversary. Pretty impressive! On the other end of the spectrum is Don Lemon, who is not yet officially a married man: He and fiance Tim Malone got engaged earlier this year.

Several CNN spouses have their own remarkable careers far from the TV spotlight. Sanjay Gupta's wife of more than a decade, Rebecca Olson, is a family law attorney, and Erin Burnett's husband, David Rubulotta, is a prominent stockbroker.

Lisa Ling's husband, Paul Song, is an oncologist and healthcare activist who specialized in radiation oncology at the University of Chicago Medical Center. The couple shares two adorable daughters, and the whole family is pictured in the gallery above.
