Katherine Green is senior vice president, managing editor for HLN. In this position, she oversees the network’s overall on-air presentation, editorial content and digital platforms. Additionally, she coordinates the development of new programming, furthering the growth of HLN’s distinctive news content. Based in CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta, Green reports to Scot Safon, executive vice president, general manager of HLN.

Prior to this appointment, Green was senior vice president and general manager for CNN International. In that role, she was responsible for all of the editorial production, program and schedule development, network talent and day-to-day operations of CNN's international production centers in Atlanta, London, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi.

Since joining CNN International in early 2008, Green strategically and significantly changed the network’s programming schedule, including the creation of a new evening lineup for Europe’s prime-time viewing hours. Programs developed under Green’s direction include “BackStory,” anchored by Michael Holmes from Atlanta; “International Desk,” anchored by Isha Sesay (10aET edition) and Hala Gorani (1pET edition) from Atlanta; “Quest Means Business,” anchored by Richard Quest from London; “Connect the World,” anchored by Becky Anderson from London; and “Prism,” the network’s first daily news show broadcast live from the Middle East.

With more than 25 years of experience in television production, Green earlier served as vice president and news director at WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C.

During her tenure at WTTG, the station received more than 130 Emmy awards, 23 Edward R. Murrow awards and in 2006 it won ten Associated Press awards, more than any other station in the U.S.

Before joining WTTG, Green served more than two years as News Director for WBAL-TV in Baltimore, Maryland, where she became the first news director in that market to win the 5p, 6p and 11p newscasts in a single sweep.

Green began her career as a reporter at WTLV-TV in Jacksonville, Florida and then later she became a producer. She has produced at stations in Miami, Florida; New York, New York and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida.
