Katy Clark

Producer/Reporter

Katy Clark is a Massachusetts native, but got her radio start as a reporter and deejay at KNOM in Nome, Alaska. She says working in rural Alaska taught her how powerful a lifeline radio news can be. In Alaska, Katy was bringing events from the Lower 48 and abroad to isolated villages and gold mining camps. She says reporting for The World is all about bringing the news of the rest of the world to an American audience. Katy's found both experiences can be rewarding, and a lot of fun.

Katy formerly was a reporter and producer with NPR's weekly sports program, Only A Game.
