Betsy Reed

Betsy Reed became Editor-in-Chief of The Intercept in 2015. Since then, The Intercept has earned many awards — and millions of readers — with its fearless reporting on a range of issues, from war, surveillance, and U.S. politics to the environment, technology, prisons, the death penalty, the media, and more.

Among the awards The Intercept has won under Reed’s tenure are a George Polk Award, a National Magazine Award, a Sidney Hillman Prize, the Innocence Network Journalism Award, and an Edward R. Murrow Award. The Intercept Brasil, launched in 2016, has achieved wide recognition for its groundbreaking journalism in Brazil.

Prior to joining The Intercept, Reed was executive editor of The Nation, where she led the magazine’s investigative coverage while also editing and writing political commentary.

She has edited several best-selling books, including Jeremy Scahill’s “Blackwater” and “Dirty Wars,” as well as the essay collections “Unnatural Disaster: The Nation on Hurricane Katrina” and “Nothing Sacred: Women Respond to Religious Fundamentalism and Terror.” In 2008, she and Richard Kim co-edited the New York Times bestselling essay collection “Going Rouge: Sarah Palin, An American Nightmare.”
