Host and Co-Creator,
Sarah Koenig is the host and co-creator of the award-winning podcast Serial. Launched in 2014, Serial is credited with bringing mainstream attention to the podcast format and has been downloaded more than 420 million times, making it the most listened-to podcast in the history of the form. Among other honors, Serial won the 2014 Peabody Award, the first time the award has been given to a podcast. In 2015, Koenig was named one of Time Magazine’s “The 100 Most Influential People.”
Sarah Koenig began her career 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 Sarah Koenig became a producer at the radio show This American Life. She has guest-hosted This American Life several times, most memorably for the “No Coincidence, No Story” show; she has also produced and reported some of the show’s most popular episodes, including “Switched at Birth,” “Dr. Gilmer and Mr. Hyde” and “Habeas Schmabeas,” a Peabody Award-winning show about Guantanamo Bay.
Serial is produced by Serial Productions, which is co-owned by Koenig, Julie Snyder, and Ira Glass. They released S-Town, a 7-part non-fiction podcast hosted by Brian Reed, which premiered in March 2017. S-Town was downloaded more than 10 million in the first four days of its release — setting a new record in the podcasting world. S-Town also won a Peabody Award in 2017. Serial Productions continues to have additional projects in development.
