Emily Elena Dugdale
Veterans/Criminal Justice Reporter
I am working on a one-year collaboration with the nonprofit newsroom ProPublica on a series of investigative stories focusing on institutional racism in the Antelope Valley. I will be unpacking the issue through a variety of lenses, including housing, education, and law enforcement. (Please contact me if you are an Antelope Valley resident and want to talk).
I joined KPCC/LAist in 2018 as our general assignment reporter, and a year later, I became our criminal justice and veterans reporter.
Previously I co-reported and produced the Offshore podcast from Honolulu Civil Beat. I spent most of my early career reporting for local news outlets in the Bay Area. I'm also a proud alum of KPCC's internship program, and received a masters in journalism from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.
I was born in Colombia and grew up in the Evergreen State. You'll find me hiking around L.A. on the weekends. Hablo español.
