Al Jazeera America
Online Features Editor
New York, New York
Katherine Lanpher is a planning editor in the digital newsroom at Al Jazeera America, which means she assigns freelance news features to writers around the world. It also means she now has more sympathy for all the editors she encountered in her freelance career as a magazine writer and in her newspaper days. She's a veteran public radio host and won a Gracie for her satellite radio show aligned with More magazine. She moved to New York a decade ago to co-host with Al Franken on Air America and since then has tracked jaguars in Belize, been fitted for a couture bra in Paris and sailed up the Nile. Which your average JAWdess would call Tuesday. She has attended JAWS for more than two decades, starting when she was five.
