 Sarah Koenig Biography

Sarah Koenig is the host and co-creator of the podcast, "Serial." After it launched in October 2014, "Serial" has been downloaded more than 80 million times, the most listened-to podcast in the history of the form. At a time when being first and being fast dominates our media, "Serial" did the opposite, proving that slow-motion journalism could captivate listeners.

Season one of "Serial" was an experiment in investigative reporting. Week by week, it unspooled a 15-year-old murder case in Baltimore. Over the course of "Serial"’s twelve episodes, Koenig proved that the story told at trial, the one that put an 18-year-old in prison for life, could not possibly be true given the flaws Serial uncovered in the evidence.

Koenig started out as a newspaper reporter – her first reporting job was at her weekly hometown paper. She lived in Moscow, Russia for several years, where she worked for The New York Times, and once she returned, went to work for the Concord Monitor in New Hampshire. She did stints as a crime reporter, and then as a political reporter -- the same beats she’d go on to cover at the Baltimore Sun.

In 2004, she became a producer at the radio show "This American Life" (TAL). She’s guest hosted TAL several times, most memorably for the “No Coincidence, No Story” show. And she’s produced and reported some of TAL’s most popular shows, including “Switched at Birth,” “Dr. Gilmer and Mr. Hyde,” and “Habeas Schmabeas,” a Peabody Award-winning show about Guantanamo Bay. In 2015 Sarah Koenig was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. In 2015 it was announced that Serial was awarded a 2014 Peabody Award.
