Ms. Teri Schultz

Freelance Journalist

Teri Schultz is a freelance reporter covering the European Union, NATO, and the Benelux countries for NPR, CBS Radio, and the German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle. She has lived in Brussels since 2006.
Schultz moved overseas shortly after receiving her degree in journalism from New Mexico State University. She was hired as a news anchor and reporter by the Finnish Broadcasting Company in September 1989. Helsinki was the perfect perch from which to help chronicle the impact on northern Europe of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the demise of the USSR, and the resumption of Baltic independence. While there, she also freelanced for CNN International, learned Finnish,and got her master’s degree in international relations from the University of Helsinki.

Returning to the United States in 1997, Schultz worked for ABC, CNN, and Reuters Television and covered the State Department for FOX News Channel for six years, covering 9/11, the Iraq war, and the beginning of the war in Afghanistan. She has made six reporting trips to Afghanistan and is always looking for a way to go back.

Schultz has been an international journalism fellow in Russia and Pakistan.
