Claire Caulfield is a reporter for Honolulu Civil Beat and audio producer for the Offshore podcast.
She previously worked at KJZZ 91.5 FM, the NPR station for Phoenix, Arizona, as a Morning Edition producer and reporter covering everything from the science of snails to medical marijuana policy.
In 2017 she directed a documentary on how widespread drinking water contamination affects low-income Americans and communities of color. “Troubled Water” went on to earn a number of awards, including a Rocky Mountain Emmy and a Webby award. She also produced and edited a documentary about the birth of southern gangster rap and its intersection with the criminal justice system of St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.
Her previous experience in community engagement constantly reminds her to focus on issues that readers care about and can dialogue with in a productive way. For Claire, this means reporting on climate change, contamination of natural resources and environmental justice.
Claire is a proud graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism where she filed stories on the 2016 election from New York City, Native American policy from the nation’s capital and community issues from downtown Phoenix.
