CNN iReport Millionaire’s Club: Welcome KCRep!

“I’ve been starstruck since I was 10 years old,” wrote Kathi Cordsen on her iReport profile, which now sports a snazzy “Million page views” badge.” Cordsen has been iReporting regularly on the world of television since 2009, but really started sharing her thoughts on shows like “Dancing with the Stars,” “American Idol” and “Grey’s Anatomy” throughout this past TV season.


However, her most memorable moment may be when she posted an iReport question for Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Her question was chosen, among 67 posted, to air on a September 2010 edition of “Larry King Live” featuring the imam.


Rauf’s plan to build an Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York drew passionate views on both sides of the issue at the time, and Cordsen asked him, “Why couldn’t you find another place? I just feel there’s an ulterior motive. …That you want to upset us for some reason. Is that true?”


Rauf responded, "It is not our intention to create more conflict. This is our intention to say we, as Muslims, we as American Muslims, want to contribute to the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan. We want to enhance relationships with our American non-Muslim fellow countrymen. We want to forge better relationships. And we want to be part of the solution."


Her question is a great example of the power of iReport interviews. See two more examples below, when she asked Sarah Jessica Parker about how she stays keeps up with her hectic life, and Dame Helen Mirren about her experience meeting Queen Elizabeth after making the movie, “The Queen.”




So, as you can see, this particular starstruck iReporter already has a few big interviews under her belt. Congratulations to Cordsen, a.k.a. KCRep, the latest member of the Millionaire’s Club!
