Meet Reporter Christine Haughney (1995)

She'll talk about her experience at the New York Times, and about her new digital video series on crimes in the food world.

Join us as Reporter Christine Haughney ’95 talks about her experience at NY Times and the launch of her investigative digital video series. Christine Haughney will talk about her transition from New York Times staff reporter to launching her digital video series on crimes in the food world and all of the challenges personally and professionally that come along with working in media today. Christine joined Food Republic and ZPZ Features in 2015 after spending eight years as a staff reporter at The New York Times. Before that, she worked at The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. During her newspaper career, she was the first reporter sent in to cover The World Trade Center attacks for The Washington Post and her reporting launched an internal investigation at the EPA over air quality issues at Ground Zero. She also sent two real-estate executives to prison for her reporting on their business practices. She has appeared on NPR, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and the BBC. While covering real estate, transportation and media at The Times, Christine carved out time to write pieces about the royal wedding banquet in 2011, how Manhattan chefs cook in their small kitchens at home, the auction of a wine bottle believed to be from Hitler’s collection and the rise and decline of Modern Farmer. Her reporting on candy consumption during the 2008 recession was featured in “The New York Times Reader Business & Economics.” Christine loves baking. She relies on her husband Thomas, a wine importer and far better cook than Christine, to make anything of nutritional value. They live in Manhattan with their son Henry.
