Karen Richards

Reporter and Host

Karen Richards joined KLCC as a volunteer reporter in 2012, and became a freelance reporter at the station in 2015. In addition to news reporting, she’s contributed to several feature series for the station, earning multiple awards for her reporting.

Beginning in 2022, Richards also fills in as a host on KLCC’s news magazines.

Richards has a background in editing and publishing, and has worked for magazines and book publishers, as well as doing some unconventional freelance writing, such as constructing crossword puzzles and producing playing cards.

When she’s not near a microphone, Karen might be holding a macro-lens camera, taking photos of insects.
