Pauline Frommer

Co-President and Editorial Director, Frommer Media LLC

Pauline Frommer started traveling with her guidebook-writing parents at the age of four months and hasn’t stopped since. She is the Co-President and Editorial Director for Frommer Media LLC, the company that publishes the Frommer Guidebooks and Frommers.com, as well as author of what has been the bestselling guidebook to her hometown since its first edition, Frommer’s EasyGuide to New York City 2018. Each week she broadcasts two radio shows, one for WABC in New York City, and another that’s syndicated by Radio America. Both are also very popular podcasts.

Her first job in travel was on the website Frommers.com, and eventually she worked her way up to Editor in Chief. Next, Pauline served as Travel Editor for MSNBC.com for several years, before moving back to John Wiley and Sons to create the award-winning Pauline Frommer Guidebooks, a 14-book series that won the coveted “Best Guidebook of the Year” title three years in a row from the North American Travel Journalists Association and once from the Society of American Travel Writers.

For four years, Pauline created weekly travel segments for CNN’s Headline News and CNN’s Pipeline. You may also have seen her talking travel on Good Morning America, The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kelly, The O’Reilly Factor, NBC Nightly News and ABC World News, Good Morning America, FOX News and every local news station you can name. She has given keynote addresses at the National Press Club, the Smithsonian, the Los Angeles Times Travel Show and the New York Times Travel Show. Her writings have been widely published in everything from Budget Travel Magazine to Newsweek to Nick, Jr. magazine. She resides in New York City with her husband, Columbia University Professor Mahlon Stewart and two very well-traveled daughters.
