Caroline Cooper

      Caroline Cooper has worked for ABC News 'Nightline'; CBS News '60 Minutes' and HDNet's 'Dan Rather Reports.' Most recently, she was senior producer on Al Jazeera America's nightly news magazine "America Tonight." As an associate producer at '60 Minutes,' she reported on criminal gangs inside a supermax prison; mismanagement of nuclear waste by the Dept. of Energy; and U.S. reconstruction efforts in Iraq. Her profile of Patricia Dunn, the chairwoman of Hewlett-Packard, who had been accused of spying on her own Board, won an Emmy award.

      At "Dan Rather Reports," Caroline's reporting took her to Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, Bahrain and Germany. A piece she co-produced, "Home Loans from Hell," was nominated for an Emmy award.

      At Al Jazeera America, Caroline produced a series on U.S. education that focused on extreme disparities in public schools only miles away from each other, and parents arrested for 'stealing an education' by trying to send their children to schools outside their own zip codes.

      Caroline was a History major at the University of Virginia and has a masters degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Missouri.
