Adria Alpert Romm

Romm is a strong proponent and champion of all of Discovery’s corporate social responsibility initiatives, including TLC’s “Say Yes to the Prom,” a program she created and launched six years ago. The program helped more than 1,000 deserving students from five cities across the country last year have the prom of their dreams while also providing educational support. She says her two favorite TV characters are Mary Richards and Murphy Brown, noting, “Mary Tyler Moore and Candice Bergen will be my female role models for all time.”

Who is your favorite current female TV character and why?
Although they are not current, my absolute favorite TV characters are Mary Richards and Murphy Brown. They were very inspiring as fictional characters. The actresses Mary Tyler Moore and Candice Bergen will be my female role models for all time.
