Veralyn Williams (she/her) is a Peabody and Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist who has been asking hard questions about our world since she picked up her first microphone in 2004. Now she brings her skills (and ears) to her role as executive producer of programming at NPR.
Most recently, Williams was the senior editor at LWC Studios, where she developed and launched The Oprah Winfrey Network original podcast, Trials To Triumphs. She was also Executive Producer for WNYC's United States of Anxiety, and she has worked to launch and shape shows like Slate Represent, Family Ghosts, Radio Rookies and The Stakes. Williams has worked to become a leader in journalism so she can amplify perspectives as complicated and multifaceted as hers.
