Mary Katharine Ham is a CNN Political Commentator who co-moderated a 2016 GOP primary debate on ABC. She's the co-author of "End of Discussion: How the Left's Outrage Industry Shuts Down Debate, Manipulates Voters, and Makes America Less Free (and Fun)." A graduate of the University of Georgia, and fourth-generation journalist, she did a stint covering NASCAR and high-school football before embracing New Media and heading to Washington D.C. to cover national politics. A mom of two girls, she hiked Kilimanjaro on her honeymoon and is always looking for new challenges, hiking and running races all over the U.S. whenever possible, and often bringing her kids along for the ride. In 2017, Ham taught on free-speech issues as a Harvard Institute of Politics Visiting Fellow in the Kennedy School of Government. She is also on the board of the Travis Manion Foundation. Formed in memory of 1st. Lt. Travis Manion (USMC), killed in action in Iraq in 2007, this unique veteran and public service organization helps vets and families of the fallen communicate a message of duty, character, and service to communities and young people across the nation.
