Ms. Anne E. Kornblut
Anne Kornblut is a senior editor at the Washington Post, helping oversee a division of 100 reporters and editors, including all political, national security and health/science coverage.
In 2013, Anne was the lead editor overseeing coverage of Edward Snowden’s NSA revelations, which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Before becoming an editor, she covered the White House for more than five years, and also covered three presidential campaigns – in 2000, 2004 and 2008 – including trailing Hillary Clinton across the country during her presidential bid, from start to finish. Following the Clinton campaign in 2008, Anne wrote an acclaimed book on women in politics, “Notes from the Cracked Ceiling.” She has appeared on dozens of national news programs, from NPR to Meet the Press, and given speeches on politics and journalism on many college campuses.
Earlier in her career, Anne was a metro reporter in Boston and New York. She previously worked for the New York Times and the Boston Globe. But the highlight of her career came during her days as an undergraduate at Columbia College, when she paid the bills by working as an elf in Macy’s Santaland.
Anne lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband and two small children.
In the fall of 2014, Anne will start a year at Stanford as part of the Knight Journalism Fellowship program, helping figure out the future of news on the Internet.
