In today’s ever-changing political landscape, Yamiche Alcindor has become a go-to voice in analyzing the most critical issues of our time, for Democrats and Republicans alike. As the White House correspondent for PBS NewsHour, Moderator of Washington Week, and an NBC and MSNBC Political Contributor, Alcindor methodically unravels the steady stream of breaking news to help her listeners – and your audience – make sense of it all.
Alcindor’s knack for following the story has taken her to places like Belgium for the 2018 North Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting. She traveled to Helsinki, Finland, for President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and McAllen, Texas, to chronicle life on the US/Mexican border and gauge the impact of President Trump’s family separation policy.
As an MSNBC contributor, Alcindor often appears on Morning Joe, Andrea Mitchell Reports, Hardball with Chris Matthews, and Meet the Press. Earlier in her career, she was a national reporter for The New York Times, writing about politics and social issues, and a journalist with USA Today.
The daughter of Haitian immigrants, Alcindor has written extensively on the intersection of race and politics. She has covered the impact of President Trump’s policies on the working-class, immigration, and breaking news coming out of the Middle East and Asia. She reported on the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders, the legacy of President Obama as well as how police killings affect communities and children.
Named the 2020 Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists, Alcindor has become a steadily rising voice in journalism. She earned a master’s degree in broadcast news and documentary filmmaking from New York University and a bachelor’s in English, Government, and African American studies from Georgetown University.
