Fearless: Samantha Barry is an upcoming must watch documentary about the Irish journalist at the helm of Glamour Magazine in New York.


The documentary, which airs on RTÉ tonight, follows Samantha in the lead up to Glamour's 29th annual Women of The Year awards, an important date in the New York style calendar.


Samantha began her career at RTÉ's Morning Ireland before she was snapped up by the BBC, eventually moving to CNN in the United States.


From Ballincollig in County Cork, Samantha took up the role of editor-in-chief at the New York magazine in 2018.

Fearless is a fly-on-the-wall programme that depicts Samantha's talent and work ethic, that shows how she made her dreams a reality.


The magazine, which is now digital only, is owned by Conde Nast, the same company that owns Vogue Magazine.


Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gives high praise to Samantha in the feature saying: "Glamour is very much a reflection of young women that we see today and Sam is its perfect leader."


The documentary airs tonight on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
