Katie Kerbstat, IHA class of 2007, is an Emmy award-winning journalist. While at IHA Katie was an editor of Accents, our school newspaper, and played varsity volleyball. For the last five years, she has been an Associate Producer at 60 Minutes, a TV news-magazine on CBS. She has worked on two-dozen stories there, co-producing eight.
This body of work has won her two Emmys, a Columbia DuPont award, two Writers Guild awards, and more than 14 Emmy nominations. Her work has taken her to the borders of Syria, the swamps of war-torn South Sudan, and to refugee camps in Djibouti and Turkey. She’s dashed (in heels) around the Vatican Palace & Capitol Dome, has searched for sunken slave ships in the Indian Ocean, filmed live-ammo war games in Jordan, has tracked down survivors of Syria's sarin gas attacks, and has gotten seasick everywhere from the Black Sea to the Gulf Aden.
Her stories include interviews with Pope Francis, President Barack Obama, the King of Jordan, Syria’s famed White Helmets, and Gold Star Families. This season she did her first story as a solo producer, becoming one of the youngest producers in the history of 60 Minutes.
Katie graduated magna cum laude from Manhattan College in 2011. She played division one volleyball and was editor of her college newspaper. Katie lives in New York City and is getting married in July. We were ecstatic to welcome her back home, as our 2018 Commencement Speaker.
