Karyn Miller-Medzon came to NPR’s Boston station, WBUR, as senior writer for Morning Edition while the Supreme Court was deciding whether to award the presidency to Al Gore or George Bush. She worked on that show for about three years, until waking up at 2:30 a.m. lost its appeal. That’s when she moved to NPR’s national Here & Now program, where she’s currently a senior producer. The show airs on about 500 stations with a national listenership of over five million. At Here and Now Karyn covers politics, arts, social issues — from homelessness to the opioid crisis, science and literature.
Before WBUR she wrote for newspapers including the Montreal Gazette, the Toronto Globe and Mail, the Riverdale Press and the Boston Herald, as well as for numerous magazines. Her environmental reporting in New York earned her NY Press Association awards for Writer of the Year and Best News Story, as well as the New York Deadline Club’s Community Service award.
She holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in international relations from McGill University, a master’s in journalism from Columbia, and a certificate from the Institut de Sciences Politiques de Paris. Her interests include reading, running, recovering from running injuries, traveling and baking elaborate cakes.
