Corinne Smith

Fisheries Reporter

Corinne Smith is an award-winning reporter and producer who grew up in Oakland, California and on her family’s horse ranch in Marin County, CA, a contrast that nurtured a deep appreciation for the complexities of identity and belonging, and connection to place, land and the natural world. This is her second season as a fisheries report, and now returns as director of the Bristol Bay Fisheries Report.

She began her reporting career at KPFA Radio in Berkeley, first as a general assignment reporter and then as lead producer for UpFront, a daily morning drive-time news and public affairs show. She’s served as a local reporter and host in Alaska for KFSK in Petersburg, KHNS in Haines, and most recently with KBBI in Homer. Her work has been recognized by the Alaska Press Club, and her stories have been featured in NPR’s Morning Edition, National Native News and the Bristol Bay Times.
