Karen Shiffman, executive producer of On Point, has worked on the show since it went on air in 2001.
Before coming to WBUR, she spent more than a decade as a television producer at WCVB-TV and WBZ-TV.
Karen holds a master’s in psychology from Harvard and once almost went to work for Martha Stewart, a fellow Barnard College graduate. Instead, she runs On Point and has produced the station’s coverage of the past three Democratic and Republican conventions.
