Mary Katharine Ham Biography

Mary Katharine Ham is a nationally prominent journalist, author and speaker. As a CNN Political Commentator, she brings conservative perspective mixed with a humorous take on politics and pop culture. In an article about Ham, CNN president Jeff Zucker said, “She’s an honest broker, and she’s got likability and confidence.”

In 2016, she was well received for her moderation of an ABC News 2016 GOP presidential primary debate in New Hampshire, which featured nine candidates.

Ham is the co-author of "End of Discussion: How the Left's Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun)."

She is a popular speaker for young audiences interested in free speech and new media. Ham has over 300,000 followers on social media. She taught a course on free-speech issues as a Harvard Institute of Politics Visiting Fellow in the Kennedy School of Government in 2017.

Ham is known for her keen observation of how the media has changed during the Trump presidency. Ham was previously a Fox News contributor from 2007-2015, most often seen as a libertarian foil to Bill O’Reilly’s populism on his prime-time show.

She is a fourth generation journalist with solid roots in print and new media. Ham has written for USA Today, The Weekly Standard, and appears periodically on NPR’s "All Things Considered."

Ham has also become a powerful speaker on faith and resilience since her 34-year old husband was suddenly killed in a bike accident in 2015. Ham was seven months pregnant at the time and had a 2-year-old. Now a single mother, she talks about her strong faith, optimism and fortitude as tools to get through — and return to living with gratitude and joy —- even in the most tragic circumstances.

Ham is a die hard UGA football fan, an athlete who relishes marathons and mountain-climbing, and a proud Southern gal who is close to her family in North Carolina.
