Graham Smith is a producer, reporter, and photographer whose curiosity has taken listeners across the U.S. and into conflict zones from the Mid-East to Asia and Africa. He is currently heading up a cold-case investigation that re-examines a brutal unsolved crime and what it reveals about America.
Smith served a record-setting stint as supervising producer of All Things Considered, and edited Morning Edition. Having spent years crafting clarity from the froth of breaking news, Smith now works with independent producers and NPR staffers on sound-rich, long-form pieces and podcasts.
In recent years, Smith accepted the Robert F. Kennedy and the Edward R. Murrow awards for investigations with Youth Radio, another Murrow for his battlefield reporting from Afghanistan, and yet another for producing in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis. Smith received the George Foster Peabody award for editing a series on teen sex trafficking in Oakland, and was chosen as a Pew Gatekeeper Fellow.
