Katie Rogers has been named a White House correspondent by The New York Times. She fills the reporting spot vacated by Glenn Thrush, who was suspended last year for inappropriate behavior with women.
Katie joined the Times D.C. bureau last January to cover the beginning of the Trump Presidency, starting with the Inaugural and the concerts and balls. She has since features on the first lady, a Saudi prince, the dog who flunked out of the CIA and life at the Trump hotel in Washington. Katie has also covered sexual harassment in Congress and the dueling-director drama at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Katie joined The Times in 2014 as an editor on the NYT Now project and later helped launch the Express rewrite desk. There she wrote stories on all topics for most desks in the newsroom, including contributing to a Foreign project on the human toll of terror attacks and writing an A1 Culture profile of a Trump inauguration performer.
Katie came to The Times from The Guardian, where she oversaw social media production for projects, including the paper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Snowden leaks, and reported on breaking news. Before that, she juggled similar duties at The Washington Post. A native of Indiana, Katie got her start as an education reporter at her hometown paper, The Elkhart Truth.
She is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago and has a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern. She and her husband live in Alexandria, VA.
