Bio


 

Celeste Katz specializes in coverage of politics and elections.

She joined Newsweek in September, 2017 as a New York-based senior political writer who covers the White House and national affairs.  

Celeste is also a host on Sirius XM radio political talk programming.

Previously, she worked as senior political correspondent for Mic, where she specialized in multimedia reporting, including live broadcasting and still photography.

She co-hosted “Special Relationship,” a podcast from Mic and The Economist which examined the 2016 U.S. presidential election from a global perspective and was ranked by Poynter Institute readers as among the best political journalism of the cycle.

Prior to joining Mic, Celeste worked for the New York Daily News and wrote for The Boston Globe.

At the Daily News, Celeste contributed to coverage of four presidential elections, four gubernatorials and four mayorals as a political correspondent and columnist and ran the paper's "Daily Politics" blog. Before focusing on politics, with assignments in the City Hall and State Capitol bureaus, she covered education and crime.

Celeste has provided political analysis in TV appearances on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, C-SPAN and CBS, and in radio interviews with NPR, Sirius XM, and the British and Australian Broadcasting Corporations along with a wide array of local stations and podcasts.

She’s been a guest lecturer, panelist, contest judge and debate questioner for the Columbia and New York University Journalism Schools, NY1 News, the City University of New York and Politicon.

Celeste launched her career at The Providence Journal, where she covered government, law enforcement and Rhode Island's Navy and Coast Guard installations. On the lighter side, she wrote a pop culture column for the Journal's lifestyles section. 

Born in the Bronx, Celeste holds an International Relations degree from Brown University, where she served as executive editor -- and later an alumni trustee -- of The Brown Daily Herald as well as president of Slavic House.

She lives in Manhattan with her dachshunds, Pebbles and Pablo.
