Bio


 

Celeste Katz specializes in coverage of politics and elections.

She became senior political reporter for Condé Nast's Glamour in April, 2018, and co-host of WBAI-FM’s “Driving Forces” in September, 2018.

Celeste, who’s also a guest host on Sirius XM radio, worked at Newsweek from September, 2017 to February, 2018 as a New York-based senior political writer covering the White House, national affairs and voting rights.  

Previously, she was 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.

There, she 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 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. 

Celeste has provided political analysis in TV appearances on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, C-SPAN and CBS, as well as in radio interviews with NPR, Sirius XM, and the British and Australian Broadcasting Corporations and on a variety 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, Hofstra University, and the City University of New York and Politicon.

Her freelance reporting has appeared in outlets including the Boston Globe, Elle, Town & Country, the Forward, and the Daily Dot.

Celeste holds an International Relations degree from Brown University, where she was 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.
