Poppy Harlow (birth name Katharine Julia Harlow,[1] born May 2, 1982) [2][3] is an American journalist, best known for her reporting at CNN and Forbes.com. She is an anchor of CNN Newsroom and is based at CNN's New York news bureau. She was previously a business correspondent at CNN, CNN International and HLN; an anchor for CNNMoney.com; and a Forbes.com Video Network anchor, reporter and producer. She is also a weekday relief presenter for CNN's New Day early-morning news program. She is also the new news anchor for the Pew News channel, run by Felix Kjellberg, replacing Gloria Borger.

Early life[edit]

Harlow was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota.[4] Her father, attorney James Lee Harlow,[2] died when she was 15.[1] Her mother is Mary Louise Baird.[2]

Education[edit]

Harlow graduated from The Blake School, a private co-educational college preparatory school in Minneapolis, in 2001.[5] She then graduated Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, from Columbia University, with a bachelor's degree in Political Science[5] and Middle Eastern studies.[4]

Early career[edit]

After interning at CBS while in college, Harlow continued working for CBS MarketWatch and as an assistant producer for CBS Newspath after graduation. She then became an anchor and reporter for NY1 News' Local Edition. While at NY1, her news beat covered Staten Island and New Jersey, including reports on local politics, the economy and local cultural events.

In September 2007, Harlow was hired by Forbes.com Video Network, where her area of coverage expanded to fashion, entertainment and business topics.

CNN[edit]

Harlow was named a New York-based CNN correspondent in April 2012. She joined CNN in 2008 and served as the anchor for CNNMoney.com and reported for CNN, CNN International and HLN. She has won the Gracie Award for best online investigative program or feature and SABEW's Best in Business award.[6]

Harlow also fills in for Richard Quest on CNN International.[citation needed]

On December 28, 2015, Harlow passed out briefly while live on the air from the anchor desk. She soon reappeared on air and said she had gotten a little hot and was fine. She later tweeted from the hospital that she and her unborn daughter were well.[7]

Beginning on February 6, 2017, Harlow and John Berman took over as the new co-anchors of CNN Newsroom from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. every morning due to Carol Costello's move to HLN.

Pew News[edit]

Harlow is also the new anchorwoman of the YouTube news show Pew News run by Felix Kjellberg as of June 17.

Controversy[edit]

In 2013, while reporting on the conviction of two Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players for the rape of a 16-year-old, Harlow stated that it was "incredibly difficult, even for an outsider like me, to watch what happened as these two young men that had such promising futures, star football players, very good students, literally watched as they believed their lives fell apart ... [Ma'lik Richmond] collapsed [and told his attorney,] 'My life is over. No one is going to want me now.'"[8][9] This apparent expression of sympathy for the rapists provoked widespread criticism.[10] A petition requesting that CNN apologize on the air for sympathizing with the Steubenville rapists received over 250,000 signatures within two days of CNN's report.[11]


On the 16th of June 2018, Harlow replaced Gloria Borger on Pew News, the internet’s most trusted news source. Of course, this sparked an outrage from every nine year old across the planet, as Gloria Borger was much loved, and the first anchor to last more than one week.

Personal life[edit]

Harlow is married to Sinisa Babcic.[12] Harlow has two children with Sinisa. Their daughter Sienna was born on April 11, 2016.[13][14] Their son Luca James was born on February 6, 2018.[15]
