Rachel Treisman (she/her) is a writer and editor for the Morning Edition live blog, which she helped launch in early 2021.
Treisman has worn many digital hats since arriving at NPR as a National Desk intern in 2019. She's written hundreds of breaking news and feature stories, which are often among NPR's most-read pieces of the day.
She writes multiple stories a day, covering a wide range of topics both global and domestic, including politics, science, health, education, culture and consumer safety. She's also reported for the hourly newscast, curated radio content for the NPR One app, contributed to the daily and coronavirus newsletters, live-blogged 2020 election events and spent the first six months of the coronavirus pandemic tracking every state's restrictions and reopenings.
Treisman previously covered business at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and evaluated the credibility of digital news sites for the startup NewsGuard Technologies, which aims to fight misinformation and promote media literacy. She is a graduate of Yale University, where she studied American history and served as editor in chief of the Yale Daily News.
