Julie Asher
Catholic News Service, Washington, DC


Ms. Asher has served as national editor of Catholic News Service for more than 20 years, coordinating all national coverage and book reviews; to many editors, she is the first person with whom they come in contact. Ms. Asher brings a level of professionalism to her job in this hot seat and, through activities such as serving on the national board of Society of Professional Journalists, has raised the profile of the Catholic media nationwide.

Her mentoring of dozens of young college students as interns has provided Catholic media—from Alaska to New York to Virginia— with young staffers. One former intern says: "Julie’s mentorship was invaluable when I was a print intern at CNS. She made time for weekly mentorship meetings with the interns and remained attentive to what we hoped to get out of our internships. For example, I told her I wanted to report in a press pool at a large event, so Julie assigned me to a White House summit. She also pushed me out of my comfort zone, in one instance assigning me a political story that landed me my first byline in America Magazine, where I am now an O’Hare Fellow. She has also never turned down any of my requests for letters of recommendation, showing how committed she is to helping me continue to succeed in journalism." Ms. Asher also has presented workshops at Catholic Media Conventions and served on nominating committees for the Catholic Press Association.
