About Ronan Farrow

Ronan Farrow is an investigative reporter and a contributing writer to The New Yorker. He is also currently producing documentaries for HBO.

His writing for the New Yorker has catalyzed personnel changes in the public and private sector, reforms in law and policy, and criminal prosecutions. His stories exposed the first assault allegations against the movie producer Harvey Weinstein, CBS executives including Leslie Moonves, and then New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Farrow’s reporting about Donald Trump’s alliance with the National Enquirer figured prominently in the first federal indictment of a U.S. President. In a series of profiles, he was among the first to identify then-fugitives from the law amongst the January 6th rioters. His examination of the legal conservatorship of the singer Britney Spears was closely followed by resignations from her attorney and manager, and his reporting on the spyware Pegasus prompted an executive order on the U.S. government’s use of such technology.

Farrow’s work for the magazine has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service, the National Magazine Award, and the George Polk Award, among other honors.

His most recent work as a documentary producer, the film “Endangered,” followed journalists through the pandemic and was nominated for an Emmy. He previously worked as an anchor and investigative reporter at MSNBC and NBC News.

Farrow is the author of the New York Times bestsellers “War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence” and “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators,” which was named one of the best books of the year by more than a dozen major outlets, nominated for a Grammy for its audiobook, and adapted into a podcast that received more than nine million downloads.

Prior to his career in journalism, he served as a State Department official, in Afghanistan and Pakistan and reporting to the Secretary of State in a global role focused on youth uprisings.

Farrow is a graduate of Yale Law School and a member of the New York Bar. He holds a Ph.D. in political science from Oxford University, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar. He lives with his partner in New York City.
