As a broadcast professional, I'm interested in narrations and voice-over work. For more than 15 years running, I’ve been the narrator for the Capital Jazz Orchestra's annual Holiday Pops concert, where I interpret pieces including “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus," “Twas the Night Before Christmas," and “A Christmas Carol.” (Photo Courtesy of NHPR)
Thinking about a possible collaboration?
I'm an experienced keynote speaker and can cover a wide array of topics, from how to engage in meaningful dialogue, to how to conduct a great interview, to some hilarious work-life balance stories as a mom of 2 boys with a ferocious daily deadline. (Photo credit: Emilie Talpin)

I am one of the most experienced moderators you'll find in New England. In addition to 25 years of a daily show, I have moderated countless public events and political debates. If you have a defined idea of what you want for your panel, I’m happy to work with that, or I can suggest a variety of formats or approaches. (Photo Credit: Allegra Boverman)

People always ask me about my interviews with presidential candidates. I have covered 7 New Hampshire primaries and have lost track of how many candidates I've met. Here are a few from over the years: Joe Biden in 2008, Barack Obama in 2007, John Kasich in 2020. (Photos courtesy of NHPR)
If you have an event in need of an experienced host, let’s connect!
Recently, I was lucky enough to be a guest host on the Cold River Radio Show in Conway, which celebrates the music, storytelling, culture, humor and authors of New England and showcases the talented Jonathan Sarty and his wonderful Cold River Band. I also had a ball interviewing mystery writer Bruce Robert Coffin of Portland, Maine. (Photo Credit: Steve Winnett)
Program Director at N.H. Public Radio
“Laura’s ability to lead a civil, thoughtful conversation is exceptional. Whether it’s a high-stakes political debate or a discussion about the music scene in New Hampshire, Laura has a unique way of making her guests feel comfortable, and crafting a conversation that is engaging and welcoming to the audience. Laura takes great care in her approach to hosting, and it shows.”
Partner | Executive Managing Director | Wealth Manager at The Sedoric Group of Steward Partners
“We at The Sedoric Group have been long standing fans of Laura Knoy, her work with public radio, and the award winning program, The Exchange, which she hosted. For decades we listened as Laura interviewed presidential hopefuls, business and community leaders with grace and respect. When Laura decided to chart a new path as a writer and freelancer, we jumped at the opportunity to work with her and her production team to launch our special project and podcast, “Beyond Your Balance Sheet” which in a short time has tackled the stigma surrounding mental health challenges, the nutty housing market, resilience and grit, and organizational and generational challenges in an evolving work environment. Our new podcast has been very well received, and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with Laura on new ideas and projects in the years ahead. Laura is the consummate professional, smart as a whip, gracious, organized, kind, and aids The Sedoric Group in our ongoing investment in community.”
Executive Director of NH Civics
It is important to NH Civics that our programs be non-partisan, and Laura is one of the few in our state that is perceived – and truly is– that way. In these polarized times, there is nobody I trust more than Laura to do her homework with guests and to maintain civility during an event. She gets to the heart of difficult issues while maintaining open communication and balance. Laura can talk with anyone –a NH farmer, a national leader, a school teacher, a student, an author –with equal compatibility, respect, and acceptance. Her language is accessible to all but is never simplistic. On top of it all, she is a pleasure to work with, always open and flexible while maintaining high standards.
