Marty Kady grew up in a newspaper family, and rumor has it that instead of placing a football in his crib, his parents put a reporter’s notebook and a pen next to him shortly after he was born in 1971. Before becoming editor of POLITICO Pro, Kady was congressional editor for POLITICO and has also served as a congressional reporter, deputy Congress editor and author of The Huddle, POLITICO’s early morning congressional news digest. He joined POLITICO in July 2007, seven months after the company launched.
Kady also spent five years at Congressional Quarterly, where he covered congressional leadership, intelligence, foreign policy and homeland security. He did earlier reporting stints at the Washington Business Journal, the Winston-Salem Journal in North Carolina and Potomac News in Woodbridge, Va.
Kady graduated from the University of Virginia in 1993 with a B.A. in foreign affairs and worked on his college newspaper, the Cavalier Daily.
Marty moderated a discussion on Rare Cancers: Charting a Faster Route to Treatment for The Forum.
