Featured journalist: Kat Santiago
If you don't already know Kat Santiago, consider this your golden opportunity: this New York-based associate producer for HuffPost Live is clearly on the rise. A self-described Colombian/Puerto Rican-American with a strong affinity for Spain, Santiago got her start as a news apprentice at CBS Boston: "Got to learn a little bit of everything - assignment desk, writing, show production, etc." When she's not immersing herself in news, she's watching the Yankees, discovering new craft beer, or just wandering the city. The stories she's most proud of are "[t]hose that give a face to an issue, like my segments on Hyperemesis (extreme morning sickness) or how deportation splits families." You'll find both those stories and more by checking out her Muck Rack portfolio here.
