Pamela Whissel is the Membership Director of American Atheists and editor-in-chief of American Atheist magazine.

Pamela holds an M.A. from the University of Cincinnati and a B.A. from the University of Dayton. Prior to coming to American Atheists, she was a local news anchor for a National Public Radio affiliate in Kentucky, a television news writer for the CBS station in Cincinnati, and an announcer for Cincinnati’s public television pledge drives.

Under her direction, the magazine went from a subscription-only publication to one that is sold in bookstores throughout the U.S. and Canada. In doing so, American Atheist has become the first periodical in US history to appear on newsstands with the word “atheist” in the title.

In addition, Pamela oversees membership programs and the growth of American Atheists’ member support network.
