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.

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.

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