Katie Bishop

Associate Producer, Soundcheck

Prior to joining Soundcheck in early 2011, Katie was an associate producer at Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius XM - where, by the way, she learned how to make a mean roast chicken. She has also worked for Marketplace, Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio and The State of Things with Frank Stasio on North Carolina Public Radio.

Katie has a B.A. from the journalism school at UNC Chapel Hill but also spent time living and studying at Duke University, which, as producer Joel Meyer put it, “is like playing for the Yankees and the Mets simultaneously.” She plays the cello in the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, and has photographic evidence that at a high school music conference, she ate lunch with the girl who would one day become Lady Gaga.

Katie Bishop appears in the following:
