Sara Kehaulani Goo is Managing Editor of NPR, overseeing the newsroom's digital content and strategy.

Goo joined NPR in 2016 as Deputy Managing Editor for Digital News, overseeing NPR's social media operation and engagement strategy for NPR.org. Before joining NPR, Goo spent most of her career at The Washington Post, as a national business reporter, digital editor and Senior News Director when the newsroom merged its print and digital operations to focus on digital growth. As a reporter, she broke stories in Washington on the creation of the government's effort to create a homeland security and air travel security operation, which prompted Congressional investigations. As an editor, she oversaw coverage of the financial crisis of 2008.

Goo also founded a data reporting and visualization publication at Pew Research Center, where she served as Senior Digital Editor from 2012 until 2016. She also worked as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal in Boston.
