Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author, and host and executive producer of the daily, independent global news hour Democracy Now! which airs on more than 1,400 public television and radio stations worldwide. Goodman has interviewed many Lannan guests including Noam Chomsky, Eduardo Galeano, and Robert Fisk.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award. She is also 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.” She is the first co-recipient of the Park Center for Independent Media’s Izzy Award, named for the great muckraking journalist I.F. Stone, and was later selected for induction into the Park Center’s I.F. Stone Hall of Fame.
Goodman is the co-author of six New York Times bestsellers. Her latest, Democracy Now!: Twenty Years Covering the Movements Changing America, co-written with David Goodman and Denis Moynihan, looks back over the past two decades of Democracy Now! and the powerful movements and charismatic leaders who are re-shaping our world. She co-writes a weekly column with Denis Moynihan (also produced as an audio podcast), for which she was recognized in 2007 with the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Reporting.
Goodman has received the Society for Professional Journalists Sigma Delta Chi Award for Excellence; American Women in Radio and Television Gracie Award; the Paley Center for Media’s She’s Made It Award; and the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship. Her reporting on East Timor and Nigeria has won numerous awards, including the George Polk Award, Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting, and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award. Time Magazine named Democracy Now! its “Pick of the Podcasts,” along with NBC’s Meet the Press. PULSE named Goodman one of the 20 Top Global Media Figures of 2009.
She has also received awards from the Associated Press, United Press International, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and Project Censored. Goodman received the first ever Communication for Peace Award from the World Association for Christian Communication. She was also honored by the National Council of Teachers of English with the George Orwell Award for Distinguished Contribution to Honesty and Clarity in Public Language.
