DEBBIE BORNSTEIN HOLINSTAT

Veteran TV news producer and media coach Debbie Bornstein Holinstat has spent her career writing for some of the biggest names in broadcast news, including Lester Holt of NBC Nightly News, CNN's Ashleigh Banfield and the Today Show's Natalie Morales. But her greatest professional reward has come from writing alongside her own father, Michael Bornstein, as they collaborated on the narrative non-fiction bestseller Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz, a story with twists so shocking, even she and her father were stunned by revelations learned in their research.  

A wife and mother of three, Debbie now works part-time producing live political and breaking news segments for MNSBC, and consulting as a television media coach. She and her father also travel the country visiting middle schools, high schools, universities, and religious and business institutions, sharing the family story and reminding readers to never forget.
