TV correspondent Ling marries Chicago doctor


NEW YORK -- Lisa Ling, a correspondent for National Geographic Channel and former co-host of ABC's "The View," married Dr. Paul Song this Memorial Day weekend.

Ling and Song, a Chicago-based radiation oncologist, were wed Saturday in an Asian-themed ceremony in Los Angeles, said Chris Albert, a representative for National Geographic Channel, in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

Song, 41, proposed to the 33-year-old Ling in December.

"They plan to spend time with friends in Los Angeles and Chicago in lieu of a honeymoon," Albert said.

Ling, who is also a correspondent for Oprah Winfrey's daytime talk show, ended her engagement to entrepreneur Philip Levine in October 2005.

She left "The View" in 2002 after three years on the ABC chatfest, and went on to become correspondent for National Geographic Channel's "Explorer."
