Emily Harris is a Knight Fellow at Stanford University this year. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and earned a bachelor's degree in Russian and East European studies at Yale University. She got her first journalism job as a morning news director at KBOO, a community radio station in Portland, Oregon in 1993. Harris worked from Moscow as a freelance writer and radio and TV reporter in the mid-nineties before moving to Los Angeles, where she was the senior producer of a daily radio talk show at KCRW. She returned to reporting as a correspondent specializing in business and economics for a number of TV and radio programs around the globe before being hired by National Public Radio in Washington, D.C. in 2000. She worked as a general assignment reporter in Washington for NPR, then joined NOW with Bill Moyers on PBS. In late 2002 she was named NPR's Berlin correspondent, a post from which she has covered Central and Eastern Europe as well as spent considerable time in Iraq. She was a key member of the NPR team that won a Peabody for coverage of Iraq in 2004.
