Kathy Rushlow holds the esteemed position of Senior Producer of newscasts at NPR, taking charge of all the newscasts aired during “Morning Edition” since December 2011. The award-winning newscasts stand as the most-listened-to programming on NPR, reaching over 28 million broadcast listeners each week, and millions more through platforms like NPR One, Alexa, and Siri.
On a daily basis, Rushlow oversees the creation of live newscasts every half-hour between 5 am and 11 am, carefully curating and determining the news to be covered, coordinating with NPR and freelance reporters, monitoring social media, liaising with NPR editors, and leading a talented six-person staff, ensuring the latest and most accurate news reaches the audience throughout “Morning Edition.”
Since the fall of 2018, Rushlow has also been an integral part of the video team responsible for delivering the newscasts via the Amazon Echo Show, embracing innovative ways to reach NPR’s audience.
Throughout her impressive career, Kathy Rushlow has been involved in producing newscasts during significant breaking news events, leaving a lasting impact. Noteworthy moments include the 1999 Columbine school shootings, the 2003 Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, the 2013 Navy Yard shooting, and the 2017 Inauguration of Donald Trump.
