Carol Hills

Senior Producer, Reporter, and Global Cartoons Editor

Carol Hills was part of the original team that created and launched "PRI's The World" in 1996. Currently she is a producer and occasional reporter who proudly calls herself a generalist. Carol is interested in everything from US policy options in Afghanistan to the rise in pet ownership in the Middle East. She also has an interest in global humor (yes, sometimes it actually does translate) and produces a weekly narrated slideshow of political cartoons from around the globe. She is loquacious about language too and each month prattles on with colleague Patrick Cox in his podcast, "The World in Words."

Over the years, Carol has reported from Cuba, Nigeria, and Vietnam. She was a Knight Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during 2001-2001 and has a masters degree from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Carol got her journalistic start in Boston on "The Ten O’Clock News" with Christopher Lydon.
