Beth Novey is a producer and editor for NPR's Culture Desk. She creates and edits web features, plans multimedia projects and coordinates the web presence for Fresh Air.
She is the co-creator of the Culture Desk's signature curatorial projects — the annual Books We Love guide, the podcast recommendation site earbud.fm and the book-TV-movie series Read, Watch, Binge. Novey has written career advice for "female" hurricanes, cataloged miserable ways to run a mile...and once convinced David Greene and Nina Totenberg to make a shot-for-shot remake of a dance scene in Love Actually.
Novey got her start at NPR as an intern for Radio Expeditions in 2005. She later served as the web producer for Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, Talk of the Nation, Fresh Air, This I Believe, Climate Connections and My Cancer.
She is from Baltimore, a graduate of Harvard University and a kids' skating and ice hockey coach on the weekend.
