Claire Trageser

Deputy I-Team and Digital Fellowship Editor

As deputy editor, Claire leads KPBS' efforts to train and support the station's award-winning journalists in developing digital-first content like podcasts, YouTube videos and data visualizations. She works collaborative with the news team to produce and enhance investigative and enterprising stories.

Her journalistic highlights include producing the six-part in depth radio, TV, and podcast series Dr J's, and creating a searchable database of police shootings and use of force cases as part of her reporting on policing. Claire has also contributed to KPBS's coronavirus coverage, including exclusively obtaining the data on where COVID-19 outbreaks are happening. She also has analyzed demographics surrounding deaths, infection rates, and the growing childcare crisis.

In 2020, Claire was named the San Diego Society of Professional Journalists' Journalist of the Year and has won that organization's Diversity Prize two years in a row for coverage of emerging leaders in San Diego's lower income communities and the tension between two neighborhoods that share a common boundary. Claire studied chemistry at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. She then earned a master's degree in journalism at UC Berkeley, where she worked at the Knight Digital Media Center and completed a master's project with Michael Pollan.
