Early life and education

Buck is a native of San Diego, the daughter of Kris (née Kouba) and Steven Ira Berg.[1] Her father was Jewish and worked as a city planner and later at a real estate brokerage founded by his wife.[1][2] She has one sister, Emily.[1][3] Buck indicated that two events influenced her career choice – the events of September 11 and the presidential election of 2008. In 2011, she received a bachelor's degree with a dual major of magazine journalism and political science from the University of Missouri, where she was a Walter Williams Scholar.[4]


After college Buck interned for The New Yorker magazine[5] In 2012, she began working as a political reporting fellow for The New York Times.[6] The same year, she started to write for BuzzFeed.[7] From 2013–2015, Buck wrote for the Washington Examiner. She joined RealClearPolitics in 2015 as a national political reporter covering the 2016 United States presidential election. With the election, Buck was named a political analyst for CNN but also appeared on networks such as Fox News, MSNBC, CBS and C-SPAN.[8] In November 2017, she became a politics reporter for CNN,[9] where she is a lead reporter covering the 2020 presidential campaign.[10]
