Abstract: We show that the only knots that are tunnel number one and genus one are those that are already known: $2$-bridge knots obtained by plumbing together two unknotted annuli and the satellite examples classified by Eudave-Muñoz and by Morimoto and Sakuma. This confirms a conjecture first made by Goda and Teragaito.
