Anya Bourg

Producer

Anya Bourg is a producer and journalist who has been making films for FRONTLINE since 2014. Her most recent was Amazon Empire, a two-hour film that investigated how Jeff Bezos transformed Amazon from an online bookseller into a business empire that is unprecedented in its size and reach. Prior to that she produced The Facebook Dilemma, a two-hour investigation into how the social media giant departed from its idealistic origins to become an international platform for political disinformation and division; War on the EPA, which traced the rise of Scott Pruitt and the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back years of environmental policy; and Policing the Police, a film that crossed the blue line to examine allegations of police misconduct in Newark N.J. and the challenge of fixing a broken relationship with the community.

Prior to joining the FRONTLINE team, Anya spent almost a decade at 60 Minutes, working on stories that ranged from drug-related violence in Mexico to the destruction of coral reefs to the lack of accountability for prosecutors accused of misconduct. She has won numerous awards including a Peabody, a DuPont, a Sigma Delta Chi and an Edward R. Murrow award for her work in broadcast journalism.

Bourg has also worked in radio, reporting a one-hour documentary for NPR’s This American Life. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
