Biography

Katie J.M. Baker is a national reporter for BuzzFeed News who has covered campus sexual assault for years. She has also worked and written for a variety of other publications, including Newsweek, Dissent, Al Jazeera, Jezebel, the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle. She received the 2013 Maggie Award for Media Excellence in Online Reporting. An unnamed spokesperson on Bill Cosby’s publicity team once called her a “gal that’s frisky” for being one of the first reporters to bring his alleged victims’ stories back into the spotlight, which she thinks is a pretty apt description.
