Sharon Hoffman, a senior producer for NBC News Productions, was the senior domestic producer for the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, where she managed the broadcast’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina — a body of work that has been honored with a George Foster Peabody Award, an Emmy Award, the Society of Professional Journalists'  Sigma Delta Chi Award, and three RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Awards, including one for overall excellence.

Prior to her tenure at Nightly News, Hoffman spent eight years as a producer for Dateline NBC, where she won two Emmys — including one for best report in a news magazine for the first documentary on United Flight 93.

She earned a bachelors degree in Chinese history from Princeton University, and she lives in Westchester County, New York, with her two sons.
