Reporter/Producer @katie_honan Contact

Katie Honan is a reporter/producer covering Jackson Heights, Elmhurst and Corona in Queens.

She comes to DNAinfo.com from WNBC/Channel 4, where she was the station's first social media editor and also worked as a web editor.

While at NBC, she was part of a team that won an Emmy for best breaking news coverage for reporting during the Empire State Building shooting.

She has a B.S. in film and television production from St. John's University, and a master's degree from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

Before attending journalism school, Katie worked on movie and TV sets, holding nearly every job with the word "assistant" in the title. Her favorite work was in the locations department, where she was paid to snoop around strangers' homes and businesses around New York City.

A lifelong Queens resident, Katie grew up in Rockaway Park and lives in Woodside.

Fun fact: She and two friends won $1,300 on Cash Cab.
