Amy Walters

Amy Walters is a field producer for NPR’s national desk based in Los Angeles. She has spent her entire professional career at NPR, initially as an intern for the network’s Middle East bureau. Since then, she has worked on almost every NPR news magazine including a two-year stint with “All Things Considered.” There she was part of the show’s award-winning coverage of September 11, 2001.

When NPR opened a California production facility, NPR’s national desk hired Walters as the first field producer for the western United States. Over the past five years, her assignments have expanded to include tours in Baghdad, New Orleans and many stops in between. Walters is often called on when news breaks. She covered the campus shooting at Virginia Tech and the deadly collapse at the Crandall Canyon coal mine in Utah. In addition, she’s produced award-winning long-form enterprise pieces on topics involving juvenile justice, drug wars and polygamy.
