Lorna Baldwin is an Emmy and Peabody award winning producer at the PBS NewsHour. In her two decades at the NewsHour, Baldwin has crisscrossed the US reporting on issues ranging from the water crisis in Flint, Michigan to tsunami preparedness in the Pacific Northwest to the politics of poverty on the campaign trail in North Carolina. Farther afield, Baldwin reported on the problem of sea turtle nest poaching in Costa Rica, the distinctive architecture of Rotterdam, the Netherlands and world renowned landscape artist, Piet Oudolf.
Baldwin pitched, researched and produced “The Plastic Problem” series that aired on the PBS NewsHour in 2018 and was a recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award. She went on to produce an hour-long documentary version of that series airing nationally on PBS in 2019. For her work on the NewsHour’s “On the Fire Line” report, she won the Outstanding Investigative Report in a Newscast Emmy Award. The report exposed a longstanding culture of rape, harassment and assault in the ranks of the U.S. Forest Service, and eventually contributed to the resignation of the Chief of the United States Forest Service. The investigation was also a Peabody nominee.
Baldwin has also has produced newsmaker interviews with President Jimmy Carter, President Bill Clinton, billionaire philanthropist Warren Buffett and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, among others.
Prior to the NewsHour, Baldwin’s love of news was fostered through her work at NBC News in New York, the BBC in both Glasgow and London and while working for a member of British parliament.
Baldwin holds a BA in International and Area Studies from Kalamazoo College. She spent her childhood in Michigan and Scotland, and remains an avid traveler.
