Katie Hawkins-Gaar

Hello! I'm Katie. I am currently the editor of iReport, CNN's citizen journalism platform. My job is all about collaborative storytelling and I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to do that. In January, I'm headed to Poynter as their first Digital Innovation faculty member.

I love my amazing husband and sweet dog, geeking out about journalism trends, hosting parties, going on adventures, and dreaming up new ideas.
