Carol Zall was a producer for The World from 2006-2012. As part of The World's daily production team, she produced hundreds of host interviews, on just about every topic imaginable. She's also reported many stories for The World, on topics ranging from genetic genealogy to global fiction, and she continues to enjoy working on cultural and literary stories for the program.

Before working at The World, Zall worked in the Gaelic Department of BBC Scotland, where she was part of the team behind “Eòrpa," an award-winning television program about European current affairs. She also worked on a number of Gaelic radio programs, including a series of radio documentaries which took her all over the Highlands and islands of Scotland.

In addition to her broadcast experience, Zall has worked as a freelance writer and columnist. In 2003, she was named Gaelic Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards for her print journalism – the first time the award was given to a non-native Gaelic speaker.
