KATE DAWSON

VIDEO EDITOR

 

With more than 20 years in television news, I've worked as a field producer, line producer, and writer for some of the top news organizations in the country.

 

While earning my BS in broadcast journalism at Boston University I worked as a freelance political field producer for WLVI in Boston and was instrumental in their coverage of the 1996 New Hampshire presidential primaries.

 

In 1997 I was hired as a writer and field producer for WCBS in New York; I freelanced there for more than five years. I also spent two years as an off-air reporter for ABC Network News Radio and four years as a freelance show producer for Fox News Channel in New York, producing several of the networks' top-ranked shows.

 

I went to Fox News Channel's San Francisco bureau for two years as their staff field producer, traveling all over the country for national news stories. I was also the co-director/co-producer of ABC Nightline’s two part series "Goldrush.com”.

 

I have a MS degree in print journalism from Columbia University and was on the faculty at Fordham University in New York for two years. I have been a senior lecturer at UT in the broadcast journalism department for almost four years.
