Dianna Douglas, national desk producer at National Public Radio, will present a Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center Lecture, “Dispatches from the Red Zone — National Public Radio's Baghdad Bureau Chief on Covering the Iraq War,” Thursday, Feb. 19, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.
Douglas has reported from across the nation and around the world. She served as NPR's bureau chief in Baghdad, covering the American occupation and its effects on Iraq and shared in the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award that NPR won for its coverage of the war in Iraq.
Her productions include the signature pieces heard on NPR’s award-winning news magazines “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered,” including long-format investigations and breaking news stories on everything from hurricanes to immigration and elections to social justice.
Douglas received a bachelor’s degree in print journalism from BYU in 2002. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, and a former LDS missionary in Rome, Italy, she now lives in Washington, D.C.
