Award-winning journalist Caitlyn Kim has been hired to lead Colorado Public Radio’s reporting efforts in Washington D.C. Kim’s position advances plans to expand CPR’s political coverage. She will focus on the state’s congressional delegation and policy surrounding key issues that affect everyday life in Colorado.
“News that affects Coloradans happens every day — sometimes every hour — in Washington D.C.,” said Executive Editor Kevin Dale. “It’s critical to have a reporter on the ground in D.C. to focus on Colorado politicians, policy makers and federal agencies making decisions about topics that impact Coloradans — from public land and natural resource management to military issues.”
Kim has produced and edited stories for a number of public media outlets around the country, including WNYC, KQED and, most recently, for NPR’s Weekend Edition. She also covered the Connecticut State Capitol for WNPR in Hartford, CT, WFCR in Springfield, MA, and WAMC in Albany, NY. She has also worked as a duty officer in the White House Situation Room.
