Cassandra Vinograd is a seasoned foreign correspondent, editor and photojournalist with more than a decade's experience at the world's leading news organizations.
She started with the Associated Press in West Africa. As an editor with The Wall Street Journal in Brussels and then London, she ran the daytime digital newsdesk and covered a few coups in her spare time. After a transition to the AP's London bureau, Vinograd focused on foreign affairs, politics and defense -- plus all things royal wedding. She rounded out her time at AP with a stint overseeing the Kabul bureau.
Most recently, she worked at NBC News as a senior writer and editor for digital. That placed her in Paris and Brussels to report on terror attacks, central Africa to take a close look at the scourge of Boko Haram and throughout Europe to cover the refugee crisis for all media platforms.
She's reported extensively on ISIS, from its use of child soldiers to a global exclusive on the first American killed fighting for the group. In 2014, she was part of the NBC team which won a Peabody Award for ISIS coverage. She won a 2016 Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists for coverage of the Brussels terror attacks with her team at NBC.
