Biography

Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, an author, and the host of the daily independent global news hour, Democracy Now!, which airs on more than 1,300 public television and radio stations worldwide. A driving force in the movement to rebuild the public media landscape, Democracy Now! presents people and perspectives rarely heard in the corporate media.

Goodman has received some of the highest honors in journalism, including the George Polk Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award. She is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the “alternative Nobel Prize” for "developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media." The Independent (UK) called Goodman and Democracy Now! "an inspiration" and the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University awarded her the I.F. Stone Medal For Journalistic Independence in 2014.

Goodman has written five New York Times bestselling books: The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, written with Denis Moynihan; Breaking the Sound Barrier; and three books co-authored with her brother, journalist David Goodman, Standing Up to the Madness, Static, and The Exception to the Rulers.
