Athena Jones '94, White House Producer for NBC News
Athena Jones has been covering the White House since Inauguration Day 2008. She has traveled with Pres. Barack Obama to nearly a nearly a dozen countries since she began covering his presidential campaign in 2007. As a campaign reporter for NBC News and the National Journal, Athena followed both the Clinton and the Obama campaigns for president in 2007 and 2008, writing stories, shooting and editing videos and appearing on MSNBC to report on breaking news during the campaign. She has also worked as a freelance segment producer at CNN in New York and was part of the NBC News Associates program in 2004.
Athena began her career in journalism as a wire reporter in South America, where she spent four years covering politics, trade, agriculture, mining, arts and the economy in Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina. She also covered elections and other events in Bolivia and Peru.
Athena graduated from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1999 with a Master of Science in journalism. After graduating from Columbia, she spent the summer studying in Cairo, Egypt as part of a program run by Duke University and the American University of Cairo designed to educate graduate students about the country and the region. Athena earned a Bachelor's degree in government from Harvard University in 1998. Because she took several Advanced Placement classes while at Cate, Athena was able to graduate with just 3 years of course work. Rather than finishing a year early, she spent her third year interning in Washington for a congressman from her home state of Texas before traveling to Spain to spend a semester studying at the University of Madrid-Complutense. She then returned to Harvard for a final year and finished with her original class. It was during her time in Washington and Spain that Athena decided not to follow her parents, cousins and numerous other family members into the law profession and to become a journalist instead.
